The exact white space requirements are not obvious in the formal 
grammar. As I point out in 
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2005Aug/0259.html) there 
is no conformance statement indicating that the formal grammar must be 
supported.

Perhaps:

  'The token S in the grammar above stands for whitespace. Only the
  characters "space" (U+0020), "tab" (U+0009), "line feed" (U+000A),
  "carriage return" (U+000D), and "form feed" (U+000C) shall be included as
  whitespace. Other space-like characters, such as "em-space" (U+2003)
  and "ideographic space" (U+3000), shall not be included as whitespace.'
