[Bug 4895] base64 encoding does not allow whitespace


           Summary: base64 encoding does not allow whitespace
           Product: SVG
           Version: SVG 1.1 Full
          Platform: All
               URL: http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Test/20061213/htmlObjectH
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Conformance Criteria

extraneous whitespace is not valid in base64 encoding (see
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2397 or more specifically
http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2396 and
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=390126), thus it is legitimate for
browsers to refuse to display the image in the testcase although many do.

It would be best if the whitespace was simply removed from the href to avoid
such issues.
