Sample page which shows how browsers sees HTML.

Safari Version       : 9.0.3 (11601.4.4)
Other browsers tested: 
     Chrome: Fail, version: 48.0.2564.116 m
    Firefox: OK 
         IE: OK
----

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Open attached sample in a browser.
2. Go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTPS and copy first paragraph (from HTTPS to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTPS)
3. Paste it in editable element, click the "Get HTML" button and observe what HTML gets produced.

----

What is the expected result?

The expected HTML is without &nbsp; being inserted before closing and after opening span tag.

If I go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTPS and execute below in console everything seems to be in order 
console.log(document.getElementById('mw-content-text').getElementsByTagName('p')[0].innerHTML);
Also viewing HTML with dev-tools doesn't show any &nbsp;

----

What happens instead?

There are &nbsp being inserted before closing and after opening span tag.


Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if possible.
I have tested this on Windows 7 and Mac 10.11
