The¬†zero-width space¬†(‚Äč), abbreviated¬†ZWSP, is a¬†non-printing character¬†used in computerized¬†typesetting¬†to indicate word boundaries to text processing systems when using scripts that do not use explicit spacing, or after characters (such as the¬†slash) that are not followed by a visible¬†space¬†but after which there may nevertheless be a line break -¬†Wikipedia Source.

Quick solution (use ​ or ​):

// ONLINE-RUNNER:browser;

Hi&#8203;there!!! <br />


Note: the zero-width space character is encoded in Unicode as U+200B.
