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

Definition from Globe: Webprog. i Java af Jacob Nordfalk:

mellemrum, tabulatortegn og linieskift er blanktegn

Example sentence(s):
  • Blanktegn Mellemrum, tabulatorer og ny linje kaldes under ét for blanktegn. Blanktegn ignoreres af kompileren. Dvs. at hver gang man laver et mellemrum, så kan man lige så godt benytte en tabulator eller en ny linje. Blanktegn gør blot koden lettere at læse. - www.uv.tietgen.dk
