Entering style attribute that begins with a semicolon causes the XML editor to delete the style attribute

Bug Description

If you use the XML editor to manually set the style of an object and the style string begins with a semicolon, Inkscape 0.47 clears the style instead of setting it. It appears the semicolon causes the parser to conclude the entire string is blank. Conversely, if the string ends with a semicolon, Inkscape will strip it out. The same behavior should be used when the semicolon begins the string. I assume that a TrimRight and TrimLeft functions are available that can remove both spaces and semicolons.

I am using Vista SP2 64-bit.
