Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-pseudo-4] ::first-letter should include space separators (#5154)

The CSS Working Group just discussed `[css-pseudo-4] ::first-letter should include space separators`.

<details><summary>The full IRC log of that discussion</summary>
&lt;dael> Topic: [css-pseudo-4] ::first-letter should include space separators<br>
&lt;dael> github:<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Last week asked for examples. They were.<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: One concern from plinss that there may be case of languages where people add space to make sure punct doesn't get added w/ first letter<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: I think I have seen examples of this with block quote and just " is the first-letter. Probably added a space to make sure first letter isn't ::first-letter styled<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: I think plinss is correct we can't make this change and need a toggle to opt in<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Any disagreements?<br>
&lt;dael> plinss: I think that behavior is not the norm. Maybe we enable and toggle is to opt-out<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Certainly possible. Could enable, not worry about toggle until we get bug reports when browsers change<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: We left with tantek wanting examples. Unfortunately he has a conflict today<br>
&lt;dael> plinss: Part of why I brought that up was to push back on tantek wanting examples. I was partly bringing up for a requirement to add counter examples<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Sounds like you're in favor of the change<br>
&lt;dael> plinss: Yes but I think tantek should be heard<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Other comments? I'm guessing we should push to next week when tantek is available<br>
&lt;tantek> If we already have compat between Gecko and Blink *not* including the space then you've got a compat issue potentially too<br>
&lt;dael> astearns: Okay, we will do that.<br>
&lt;tantek> so I'll push back until someone provides a print example showing a real world need<br>
