Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

As far as I can tell this requirement makes as much sense as requiring that
characters in the string be rendered so that they are recognisably similar to
the glyphs that Unicode shows, or that text should be rendered with glyphs next
to each other rather than on top of each other.

Unicode defines the semantics of these characters. If the browsers don't honour
them, then that's a violation of Unicode's semantics. I don't see what that has
to do with HTML. Adding a requirement to follow the requirements in Unicode
doesn't make any difference to whether the requirements will be followed or
not.

Re comment 4: The argument is defined as a string in the IDL. White space in
HTML isn't collapsed (the effect you're referencing is merely a side-effect of
the suggested default CSS rules).
