What is a "white space" error? Are you saying that your webpage
rendering software does not support it correctly?

The site 'w3schools.com' is in no way affiliated with the W3C, it is
also know to suffer from a number of errors and gives numerous
examples which break good practice. (For that matter, the
www-validator mailing list is populated by more then a few volunteers,
also with no official affiliation to the W3C).
 
The problem you describe is not a validation issue, so this is not an
appropriate forum to raise it in. I suggest you try the
comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html or alt.html newsgroups, or the
mailing list you can find at http://webdesign-l.com/. However, I
suspect the answers you are likely to get will boil down to (1) Don't
use invalid markup and (2) Don't use frames -
