English term or phrase: whitespace character
Definition from Robin Lionheart:
Characters in a document that are considered to separate words. In HTML 4.0, ASCII space characters, line breaks, tabs, form feeds, and zero‐width spaces are white space characters. One or more of these characters in the source document mark the end of one word and the beginning of another.

Example sentence(s):
  • When rendered, a whitespace character does not correspond to a visual mark, but typically does occupy an area on a page. As is common in technical literature, the two words "white space" have found widespread usage as the single term "whitespace", especially when used as an adjective, as in "whitespace character". Wikipedia
  • Preprocessor directives must appear as the first non-whitespace character on a line eggheadcafe.com
  • You can only filter nodes that contain only whitespace. In a text node that contains any non-whitespace characters, whitespace is considered significant, and is always displayed. IBM Corporation

空白字符(白格字元)
Definition:
在很多词法/语法分析器中,空白字符(whitespace)指的是任意多个基本空白字符(包括空格、制表符t、回车换行符n)的连续组合。
在C/C++编程语言中,C风格的字符串又叫null-terminated string,一般译为空字符结尾的字符串,这里空字符(注意,不叫空白字符)是指'',或者是字符的编码值为0的字符。
你指的是那一种情况呢?
C的标准库有一个例子,isspace函数可以检测一个字符是否为空白符,他的空白符的定义应该适合我提到的第一种情况。

  -> Thank you, Stone! I would rather say "空白字元", but I found that I couldn't edit my translation a little after my submission...

Yes  David Zhu: Sometimes, it is also translated into “空格字符”。Example sentence: 检查参数c是否为空格字符,也就是判断是否为空格('')、定位字符('\t')、CR('\r')、换行('\n')、垂直定位字符('\v')或翻页('\f')的情况。http://tieba.baidu.com/f?kz=176949561
