Section 7.2 of the draft says: "Normalize the string by removing all whitespace characters from input."
So, Yes, whitespace is ignored. Simple!
It also makes generating printable examples much, much easier ;)
Note: Magic Signature discussions should be on:
We'd welcome discussions about both magic signatures and salmon on the salmon-protocol list; if there is wider interest in magic signatures we can start a new list.
Aside: Sorry about the name, we needed something to go out with and couldn't some up with anything better...

Interesting. The term "magic" is a little to cutesy for me, but maybe I'm
just getting old.
The draft, and the RFC on base64 it references, aren't specific enough
about whitespace. Maybe I read too quickly, but the sample shows indented
lines -- is the leading whitespace ignored? Embedded whitespace? Where
odes it say that?
I'd propose something similar: all whitespace is ignored when generating
the digest. Then even more issues vanish.
