How can I get rid of those strange char­ac­ters af­ter cut and paste?

The CTAN por­tal uses the same hy­phen­ation al­go­rithm as does. For this pur­pose the hy­phen­ation points are in­serted into HTML to en­able the browser to use them. Th­ese – nor­mally in­vis­i­ble – char­ac­ters are mis­in­ter­preted by some pro­grams when the text is pasted.

You can turn off these char­ac­ters with the switch “Ap­ply hy­phen­ation” on the Set­tings page. If it is turned off then the hy­phen­ation char­ac­ters are not in­cluded – but this dis­ables the hy­phen­ation of long words as well.
