- Extracted from bug 45804.
- Tested on the Mac but it must be a cross-platform problem.

A regression was introduced between M17 06/28 and M17 06/30: if spaces are 
inserted before the DOCTYPE declaration, the declaration is ignored.

See the testcase that I'm going to attach.

I suspect this would be fixed by the DOCTYPE parsing code I attached to bug
