+ The default separators of list items in a field are space, ',', and tabulator
+ characters. Thus conveniently if spaces are put at the beginning and the end of
+ the fields they are ignored. However if the list separator is changed with the
+ <emphasis>listsep</emphasis> option, the spaces will become part of the actual
+ item and the line will be most probably ignored. For this reason, it is not
+ recommended to put spaces around the ':' characters.
