Weird CSV to Subscribers List Character Conversion

I imported subscribers from a CSV list, but when I do so, I get symbols that seem to represent invalid HTML entities instead of spaces between first and last name. I go back and look at the CSV file and the names that have these symbols in them in the subscribers list, and as far as I can tell they are just spaces.

Here's a screenshot of the symbols in the list:

Is there some weird character that looks like a space, but isn't really one?

Hey bccarlso,

I believe we got this sorted out via support (it was a non-breaking space character being inserted in your csv), but if you need any other help just let us know.
