From-plus-a-space



In bis-09, section 7.1 ("Dash-Escaped Text") says "An implementation
MAY dash escape any line, SHOULD dash escape lines commencing "From "
(note the space), and MUST dash escape any line commencing in a dash."

However, in the draft, the mention of "From " is broken over two
lines as:

   "From
 "

This makes the text a little unclear, despite the parenthetical "note
the space".  Also, once this draft becomes an RFC, people will be
HTMLizing it, and printing it with various non-monospaced fonts, and
so on.  I suggest changing the "(note the space)" to "(the string
'From' followed by a space)".
