On the other hand, the property is called 'white-space', so maybe it's 
more consistent to use "white space"...

But it's true that "whitespace" occurs more often: 41 times against 10.

I assume this is editorial and as I'm the editor, I've gone ahead and 
done it: changed 10 occurrences of "white space" and one occurrence 
of "white-space" (not referring to the property) to "whitespace".
