Right.  Also, from a _manually-editing_ author's point of view, slipping
in a space before the closing ">" is a typo that is more likely to occur
than prefixing the tag name with a space.  (No statistics, just speaking
from personal experience.  I've never done "< ", but I have on occasion
done " >".  How do I find these errors?  Use Lynx's "strict (SortaSGML
mode)", of course.  Put in other words, Lynx NOT doing excessive error-
recovery is an invaluable feature.)
