As Johannes said before I also think that's probably intended because you should _not_ use pt or pc for screen devices and you should _not_ use px with the exceptions the algorithm mention.

With the current algorithm if you use pt or pc, or if you use px out of the exceptions, you will get a FAIL and this is the way it should be.

(Note that there's no agreement yet on the exceptions, have a look at [1] for details)

Extract from the current draft [2]:

"Several tests refer to white space. White space has the same definition in this document as in XML. For XML 1.0 [XML10] it is defined in http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/#sec-common-syn  as being:

S ::= (#x20 | #x9 | #xD | #xA)+ i.e. the characters SP, TAB, CR and LF.

For XML 1.1 [XML11] it is defined in section 1.3 as consisting of the same characters with the addition of NEL (#x85) and the Unicode line separator character, (#x2028)."

As you can see at [3], and if I have the same understanding of line-breaks, they are always covered by CR, LF, a combination of both or NEL, so the answer would be yes.
