Unlike XML, SGML allows the omission of white space before the name of 
an attribute if there is delimiter (ie. quote) before that. That is <p 
id="foo"class="bar"> is OK.

Windows IE 6, Mac IE 5.2.3, Opera 8.10, Deer Park trunk and Safari 1.3 
all support the omission of white space after quoted attributes in 
HTML.

Should the omission of white space in this case be considered 
conforming in the text/html flavor of HTML5?
