Mac IE will may add characters to a form element upon submittal.  Use Trim()
if you are needing to compare a form value against a string literal to
account for this.

<tip type="CF" author="Joshua Olson">
If you loop through all the form elements and trim them then you may be
breaking the file upload on the site.  For example, let's say you have a
field called "newimage" that is a file type input.  When you display the
variable "form.newimage" it may not appear to have any whitespace.  But, if
you do <cfset form.newimage = Trim(form.newimage)> then the call to <cffile
mode="upload"> could possibly fail.
