 +====Whitespace====
  
 +"​Whitespace"​ is a term that refers to "​space"​ characters that you use to separate programming code tokens,
 +such as the spacebar space, and the tab character. They are considered interchangeable in type and quantity -
 +using two spaces usually has the same effect as using one space, one tab, and so forth.
 +
 +Harlowe tries to also recognise most forms of [[https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Whitespace_character#​Unicode|Unicode-defined whitespace]],​
 +including the quads, the per-em and per-en spaces, but not the zero-width space characters (as they may
 +cause confusion and syntax errors if unnoticed in your code).
