There is a normative definition on how user agents must
treat white space in HTML documents. Multiple white space
characters are converted to a single space character outside
the context of a pre element. All white space is reserved
inside pre elements with leading and trailing line breaks
as exception.

See e.g. section 6.2 of HTML 4.01.
