I created a new post on my localhost WP 2.0.  I added two trackbacks 
with a space between them.  One to RedAlt and one to Asymptomatic.  Both 
trackbacks were received.

I did not try commas, but I wouldn't expect that to work, given the 
instructions on the page.  The knowledge I have about how trackbacks are 
processed says that using a comma and not a space would cause the urls 
to be concatenated into a single invalid url:


Using a comma and a space would put a comma at the end of the first url, 
and that would probably cause it to fail, since the comma is not 
recognized as part of a valid url by the receiving server.

Anyway, those are my results.
