In 16.6.1 <http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/text.html#white-space-model>
we have this text:

   # If 'white-space' is set to 'pre' or 'pre-wrap', any sequence of
   # spaces (U+0020) unbroken by an element boundary is treated as a
   #  sequence of non-breaking spaces.

I don't see anyone breaking at element boundaries in such a sequence,
and I can't remember why we wrote that phrase in. Anyone have a clue?
