Excel - imported data not working for vlookup because of funky format?

In the attached file, one vlookup works, and one doesn't. The non working one has the reference cell copied from a web page. Looks the same, but isn't. Why?

It seems like there are some funky characters in the bad example

I used this to test it.  Instead of a space (char(32)) it is spaces mixed with char(160)

Sub test()
    Dim s As String
    s = [B1].Value
    For i = 1 To Len(s)
        MsgBox "'" & Mid(s, i, 1) & "'" & vbCrLf & Asc(Mid(s, i, 1))
    Next i
End Sub
