Type a space. It works. (You mean you didn't try it before asking? Tsk. ;-))
I even block subjects containing " " (no quotes).
Most other text fields (e,g, in contacts) remove leading and trailing
spaces, but not Rules.
You should have a Match <if ANY>, and as well as
<Subject> <Contains> <iCal >
you should also have
<Subject> <Ends with> <iCal>
because that one won't have a space at the end.
Neither will catch "technical".
