Comment:

For cgmFont normalization, do you mean "stripping out all whitespace" or 
normalizing white-space to a single space, as per substitutionList?

RESPONSE to your comment:

Resolution:

The intent is indeed "stripping out all whitespace". This enables 
identical normalization results, for example, for a font name that used 
whitespace instead of camel case on the one hand, and on the other hand 
a font name that used only camel case (with no whitespace), or one that 
used hyphen or underscore in place of whitespace. These are legacy 
situations that arise in WebCGM practice. Please see the response to 
I18N WebCGM Comment #3 for more detail.
