Pat and Harry,
The category Whitespace is used to represent
one or more of blank, tab, endline, etc.
Instead of adding a specification of where
Whitespace may occur, many people simply
add two global rules:
1. No whitespace is permitted between
constituents of a lexical category.
2. But Whitespace is permitted between
any two constituents of a nonlexical
A delimited comment could be added as one more
type of permissible Whitespace.
With this metalevel comment, both comments and
whitespace may be omitted in the grammar rules.
