XText is able to support keyword with whitespaces

In case I write in grammar something like :
MY_KEYWORD:
	"KeywordStart KeywordSecond"
;


Xtext suggests me to rewrite as

MY_KEYWORD:
	"KeywordStart"  "KeywordSecond"
;


But seems to me it is not fully corresponded

Thank you in advance

The first alternative would require to use always exactly one space between the kewyords. No tab, no newline. It is generally recommended to split multiple keywords. What you likely want is that you get proposed to insert the second keyword along when starting typing the first keyword and use content assist to complete that. Therefore handle this with customizing content assist.
