This was a non-compliant with CSS2.

This was what CSS2 required.

CSS2 revision 1 changed things such that the default is supposed to be 
what Opera does (i.e. default to white-space: pre-line) but that it can be 
changed like in Mozilla (i.e. that white-space applies). Both browsers 
should now change to match the compromise.
