Dear HTML WG,

  XHTML 1.0 First Edition required user agents to treat the zero width
space character (U+200B) as white space character. This requirement has
been removed in XHTML 1.0 Second Edition. This raises the question
whether

  <p class="foo&#x200b;bar">...</p>

belongs to the classes foo and bar (as in HTML 4 and XHTML 1.0 First
Edition) or to a single class foo<U+200B>bar. Could you please clarify
this in the errata for XHTML 1.0 Second Edition and XHTML M12N? Thanks.

regards.
