Avoiding spaces in concatenated inline text

Hi folks,

I’m trying to create this line of text:

This Amlot note was published on May 25, 2021.

where the date is taken from the CMS. Here’s an example.

I currently have a div containing three elements, the prefix text, the date, and a period a the end.

This div is set to “inline” as follows:

And yet, whatever I do, there’s a space between the date and the period.

Here’s what the inspector shows:

There are no margins anywhere near these objects. I can even select the space in the browser

Any ideas?

PS: I can build this line with custom HTML, but(!) while you can pull in CMS content in HTML, you cannot format the date.
