Concatenation of strings spaces in Lua

Question

I'm trying to prettify a list output.

 

i run through the list of rooms and find the longest room name= maxStrLength

sending "longest room name" and room name to the function

 

My way of adding spaces to the variable, don't work - i tried all possible combinations, besides the right one ?

can't i have a string ending with multible spaces or what goes wrong here?

It works with other characters like underscore

another thing, but related to above example

The LUA # function like #strVar above - is doubling danish characters like æøå when counting.

The length of strings in Lua is the number of bytes in it, not the number of chars - so how do i do this smart ?
