RFC 2440, page 46:
6.4. Decoding Radix-64
Any characters outside of the base64 alphabet are ignored in Radix-64
data. Decoding software must ignore all line breaks or other
characters not found in the table above.
In Radix-64 data, characters other than those in the table, line
breaks, and other white space probably indicate a transmission error,
about which a warning message or even a message rejection might be
appropriate under some circumstances.
Because it is used only for padding at the end of the data, the
occurrence of any "=3D" characters may be taken as evidence that the
end of the data has been reached (without truncation in transit). No
such assurance is possible, however, when the number of octets
transmitted was a multiple of three and no "=3D" characters are
so, end-of-line-spaces are PEFECTLY legal.
