Hello, thanks for the answer.

This is interesting, but not really easy to use.
If "white-space-collapsing: discard" is set, what happen to inline
element included?

Assuming i have:

<span style="white-space-collapsing: discard">

  <span style="inline-block;width:25%;">
    <a href="#">1</a>
    <a href="#">2</a>
  </span>
  <span style="inline-block;width:75%;">
    <a href="#">1</a>
  </span>

</span>

so the links in the first span will be attached?
