Required field validator different behavior client/server-side


Because of an issue with spam prevention we found out that the behavior of the Required field validator on Text controls in EPI Forms is different on the client and server. When enabled with JavaScript, the validators detect spaces as non valid input for required validators. However when disabling JavaScript in the browser the server-side validation triggers and that one allows spaces as valid data. Is this behavior by design different in JavaScript then on the server?
