           Summary: [WebVTT] accept more white space characters as cue
                    timing separators
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: other Hixie drafts (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch

Right now
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/webvtt.html#webvtt-cue-timings
only accepts the U+0020 SPACE character as a separator between "-->" and the
timestamps. When authoring, the TAB character is often visually
indistinguishable from the SPACE character. We could be more lenient towards
hand-authored content if we allowed the TAB character as a separator, too.
