Why does the HTML pop-up strip internal spaces?

I have some parcel data that has more than 1 space between the Township/Range section and the Lot eg:


1N1E36D  -00100

However in both ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS Online the popup strips the internal spaces to just one space.


1N1E36D -00100


I have tried arcade expressions to get the popup to render the internal spaces correctly to reflect how they are in the database:

Replace($feature.PARCEL_APN," ","nbsp")

  but it shows this instead:


* note I used the correct syntax, i just used the incorrect syntax here so it wouldn't render as spaces


The popup always strips them after the expression calculation so it doesn't matter what I do in the expression builder for configuring the popup. This also happens in ArcGIS Online as well. 


Am I just missing the sytnax or is this one of those it's a feature not a bug kind of things?
