When documenting Objective-C, the preferred representation for protocol names is one without the spaces between the name and the angled brackets. I'm guessing this is because of C++ syntax for templates, etc.

It would be great if Obj-C protocols could appear without spaces, including when used in parameter types, return types, dot diagrams, inheritance hierarchies, etc. It would be a lot easier on the eyes (and understanding) and save a little space to boot.
