           Summary: Leading/trailing whitespace in attributes that take a
                    URL should be conforming
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec bugs
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org

In attributes that take exactly one URL (for example a@href or img@src),
leading or trailing whitespace should be allowed in the attribute value. It
will be safely stripped, and will not have any interoperability impact, nor
will it do anything other than what the author expects.

msn.com is an example of a site with this error:
