Well, I think Jim Allan pointed to the source of this notion in his email of
a few hours ago.
1) From the UCD:
2) From Unicode 3, Section 4.5, third paragraph (in its entirety):
"Zs, Zl, and Zp are considered format characters, but their membership in
the Z (separator) class takes precedence over their membership in the Cf
class, because General Category assigns only a single value to each
I believe that reasonable people might reasonably conclude from factoids 1
and 2 that SPACE is indeed a format character.
Reasonable, but evidently wrong. Explanation, please?
