attribute_whitespace

Define if attribute values (in particular numerical attributes) are allowed to have leading and/or trailing whitespace (e.g x=" 10" interpreted as 10 and not as an error)

State:
RAISED
Product:
SVG 2
Raised by:
Erik Dahlström
Opened on:
2013-03-28
Description:
Should whitespace be trimmed in attribute values per default unless anything else is stated?

Testcase for feColorMatrix@values: http://oldgeeksguide.github.io/bugs/chrome/svg-fecolormatrix/index.html

From html5[1] a selection of attributes where surrounding whitespace is allowed (stripped away): srcset, accept, accept-charset, action, all integer values, all floating point values, url values
From html5 a selection of attributes where surrounding whitespace is explicitly forbidden: all Boolean attributes, all enumerated attributes
