# Unicode char {U+200B}

When want to cite more then two authors, I got this:

! Package inputenc Error: Unicode char ​ (U+200B)
(inputenc)                not set up for use with LaTeX.


\documentclass[a4paper,oneside,BCOR=10mm,12pt,titlepage]{scrreprt}
\usepackage[polutonikogreek,ngerman,english]{babel}
\usepackage[maxlevel=4,autostyle,german=guillemets]{csquotes}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[style=mla]{biblatex}
\DeclareMultiCiteCommand{\parencites}[\mkbibparens]{\parencite}{\multicitedelim‌​}

\begin{document}

\parencites[cf.][]{key1}{key2}key3}

\end{document}

• unrelated to the error you are missing a { before key3} – David Carlisle Feb 7 '17 at 23:49

U+200B is zero width space which you have here:

elim‌​}


from the end of this line

\DeclareMultiCiteCommand{\parencites}[\mkbibparens]{\parencite}{\multicitedelim‌​}

  U+0065 LATIN SMALL LETTER E     e
U+006c LATIN SMALL LETTER L     l
U+0069 LATIN SMALL LETTER I     i
U+006d LATIN SMALL LETTER M     m
U+200c ZERO WIDTH NON-JOINER     &zwnj;
U+200b ZERO WIDTH SPACE     &ZeroWidthSpace;
U+007d RIGHT CURLY BRACKET     &rcub; &rbrace; \rbrace


delete that line and re-type without the invisible control characters between the m and }

• Nice! Thank you so much! Now it works perfectly! – user124801 Feb 7 '17 at 23:53
• So this worked perfectly. Thank you. I deleted a whole line and retyped it and it worked. How did David generate the output in the bottom box with the character codes? I tried blindly finding the ZWS blindly but didn't manage until I deleted the whole line. – Cyrille Dec 19 '17 at 22:18
• @Cyrille I cut the text where I suspected the character into w3c.github.io/xml-entities/unicode-names.html and hit "convert" (a javacscript page that I wrote some time ago) – David Carlisle Dec 19 '17 at 22:32
