The description contains an invalid control statement.
A control statement is a line starting with a dot (.). The only control statement is defined by the policy is a single dot denoting an empty line.
The "empty-line" control statement does not permit any characters following it on the same line. Therefore, the line must consist entirely of a space followed by a dot.
