Attribute spec vague?

	it says, in part, regarding attibutes:

		Attribute/value pairs appear before the final
		">" of an element's start tag. Any number of
		(legal) attribute value pairs, separated by
		spaces, may appear in an element's start tag.

	To me this implies that an attribute's name can be separated
	from its value only by '=' with no whitespace, e.g.:

		NAME="value"		legal
		NAME = "value"		illegal

	Is there anyone who disagrees?
