[Bug 893827] Re: whitespace after an img tag within an a tag is underlined

To verify that I am not going crazy (yet), I just installed the older
3.6 version of Firefox. It displays the images as expected, without
underlined whitespaces.

I tried specifying several different doctypes (4.01 strict, html5), but
Firefox 8 won't ignore the whitespace. The specs say it should ignore
those following a start tag and those preceding an end tag. Firefox 8
does that correctly for the a tag if it contains (only) text: no extra
space is underlined. But it fails if an img is the content.
