           Summary: No whitespace before "<!DOCTYPE HTML" in content
                    sniffing
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Spec bugs
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: simonp@opera.com

2.7.4 Content-Type sniffing: unknown type says in the table:

FF FF DF DF DF DF DF DF DF FF DF DF DF DF       3C 21 44 4F 43 54 59 50 45 20
48 54 4D 4C       text/html       Scriptable      The string "<!DOCTYPE HTML"
in US-ASCII or compatible encodings, case-insensitively.

Any reason why whitespace before the doctype isn't skipped (considering that
whitespace is skipped before "<HTML", "<HEAD" and "<SCRIPT")?
