 Dear Shadi Abou-Zahra ,

The Mobile Web Best Practices Working Group has reviewed the comments you

taken the time to review the document and to send us comments!

The Working Group's response to your comment is included below, and has
been implemented in the new version of the document available at:

Your comment on 2.3.10 White Space:
> - comment nature: [clarification]
> - location: 2.3.10 White space
> - current wording: "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"
> - suggested revision: Should &nbsp; entities (#xA0) be considered?
> - rationale: This entity is frequently used (and abused) and having a 
> look at the related test (3.15, 3.17 and maybe 3.12) it makes even more
> sense

Working Group Resolution:
No change is required as nbsp is used by authors to indicate non-redundant
white space, that it has semantic content. Detecting whether its abused or
nonsensical gets difficult and is beyond the scope of the current test.
