How is "<script src = 'app.js'> </script>" wrong?

I posted this question on reddit and no one knows why this is wrong.

If you are actually writing it like <script src = 'app.js'> </script>, then it's incorrect because you have spaces before and after the equal sign, which is improper formatting.

I see. Is it really space sensitive or is it just for format sake? I'm not really familiar with html yet, and I wrote out some spaces for readibility in a few workspaces I believe and it ran fine.
