This was discussed today's HTML Testing Task Force meeting

See -> http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/common-microsyntaxes.html#space-character

Indeed the HTML5 spec doesn't state the vertical tab is a 'space-character'.
Though IE and Firefox do treat this as a space character, though Opera and Chrome don't treat this as a space character.

So this could be resolved a few ways 
#1 Add VT Vertical Tab added to the specification as a space character along with the other control characters listed.
      HT Horizontal Tab, LF Line Feed, FF Form feed and CR Carriage return
#2 Change the test to use another space character that is listed in the spec

I'll open a bugzilla bug on the spec, though it does seem pretty edge case overall.

Hi Mr.Philip Taylor,
1. The description provided in the test - http://w3c-test.org/html/tests/approved/canvas/2d.text.draw.space.collapse.nonspace.html says - "Non-space characters are not converted to U+0020 and collapsed". Please elaborate on the term "Nonspace".
2. The test-case uses the string  'E\x0b EE'. 
For this test-case to pass, the character '\x0b' should be considered as a space. Please let me know if there is any other alternative for this test-case to pass. 
The requirement that "the character '\x0b' should be considered as a space" is not found in the HTML5 spec. 
I am referring to http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/common-microsyntaxes.html#space-character for the spec. 
Please let me know if this test-case is valid with the latest spec.
 
Thanks,
Rashmi
