Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The main way in which the HTML spec's algorithm is superior to the
ES algorithm is that ES' algorithm changes every time Unicode add new
whitespace characters. It's also simpler to implement (either from scratch —
it really is a simpler algorithm — or, if you're going to use a library, it's
simpler because you would only need to use an HTML library which you're likely
already and which is likely to expose this as a function explicitly using
rather than having to find a JS library that exposes this particular
algorithm), and simpler to understand from an authoring perspective. It's also
easier to spec (no need to track another spec with moving references, not to
mention that that spec itself tracks another one), and easier to understand
when reading the spec.
