Where I have the arrow (Line 6) is where my problem is. When I check to see if 'd' is there, it doesn't return "test". I understand this is because previously I had changed d to ░, but if I just put ░ in the code, that doesn't work, neither does putting 176. If I don't convert d to ░, "test" is returned.
So the questions is, how can I get ░ to return "test"?
