    Description

      Issue Summary

      • In the Confluence editor, if we were to paste any invalid whitespaces like "0x8", the character is automatically removed to allow the page to be published.
      • But if this character is in the "Status macro", it is not removed, and the page cannot be published.

      Steps to Reproduce

      1. Go to the site below, and paste "0001000", binary for 0x8, and convert it to ASCII/UTF-8.
      2. Copy the result, and try pasting it into a page in Confluence and publish the page.
        • The content is removed automatically and the page is published.
      3. Try adding the same content into a "Status macro", and try publishing the page.
      4. You'll hit into the error below.
        • Your work is safe, but there’s an issue
