<QUOTE src="HTML 3.2 specification">
Except within literal text (e.g. the PRE element), HTML
treats contiguous sequences of white space characters as being
equivalent to a single space character (ASCII decimal 20).

It doesn't matter how many '\x20' characters the authors put in there.
It is equivalent to a single space. If they put in multiple  
elements, that should be preserved, of course.
