Hi

The reference
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/browsers.html#concept-appcache-fallback
needs to mention that fallback entries can't contain uri duplicates.

Use case : on first manifest visit, cookieless user agent may use url rewriting
for resources, ie use a ";jsessionid=" trail or some other kind of session
parameter. The uri + session trail seems to be the cache key at least on iOS
devices.

The following manifest will cause Chrome 24 to fail loading the manifest, with
a cryptic "Application Cache Error event: Failed to commit new cache to
storage" error message : 

CACHE MANIFEST
/foo.php

FALLBACK:
/ /fallback.php
/ /fallback.php?sessionid=1234

NETWORK:
*

This will fail because of the duplicate /fallback.php line. Removing the second
one with ?sessionid fixes the problem. I believe Chrome does not know which
fallback line to use.

Thanks
