Description Simon Pieters 2009-09-14 18:00:51 UTC
Currently, the following doctypes are allowed in HTML5 in the parser:

<!doctype html public"-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN""">
<!doctype html system"about:legacy-compat">

However the syntax section requires a space between system and about:legacy-compat.

Either the parser should change to require whitespace there, or the syntax section should not require it.

Checked in as WHATWG revision r3923.
Check-in comment: Don't require a space between the word system and the system identifier.
