The entire text shouldn't have been removed. Empty attributes still need a 
space after them if they are followed by another attribute. Sorry for being 
unclear.

It should say:

   If an attribute using the empty attribute syntax is to be
   followed by another attribute then there must be a space
   character separating the two.
