[Bug 12602] New: "<select><option>\n<option></select>" isn't a placeholder label option because its value is "\n", which is silly. We should strip spaces from the start and end in the definition of the option's label when it comes from textContent.

           Summary: "<select><option>\n<option></select>" isn't a
                    placeholder label option because its value is "\n",
                    which is silly. We should strip spaces from the start
                    and end in the definition of the option's label when
                    it comes from textContent.

Comment:
"<select><option>\n<option></select>" isn't a placeholder label option because
its value is "\n", which is silly. We should strip spaces from the start and
end in the definition of the option's label when it comes from textContent.
