 HTML 4.0 spec says nothing about stripping trailing white spaces. It just
says (in interact/forms.html#edef-INPUT):
   The  INPUT  element's  type attribute determines which control will be

          This  type  creates a single-line text box. The value submitted
          by a text control is the input text.
 Nothing is said about whether browser should or can "beatify" or "normalize"
the text that was input. I think it should be treated as "no normalization
required" or "any modification to text that was input is prohibitted". And as
I said, all browser I know of (IE, Mozilla, Netscape, Konqueror, Opera, links)
trim trailing whitespaces, so it seems to be a de-facto standartized.
