Trailing white space

How does GPG handles trailing white spaces when preparing cleartext
signatures? Also, what is PGP8's default behavior? If anyone can shed
light on this I would appreciate it.

If the whitespaces are removed before calculating the signature, then
are they removed from the document as well before it is sent out, or
does the receiving side have to do it's own trimming of trailing
whitespaces before calculating the signature?
