[openssl-users] Certificate format question?

I tried googling, but couldn't find an answer to this...

I came across a certificate that had some text garbage before the ---- BEGIN CERTIFICATE ---- line.

I know that the cert is defined as the data between the delimiters.  Do the specs say anything about data before the BEGIN delimiter?  Would a certificate with such data be valid?  I know OpenSSL accepts such a cert, but is this an extension, or is it explicitly permitted by the standards/specifications?
