           Summary: 'setCustomValidity' call in <input> element should use
                    'oninput' event...

...not the 'onforminput' event - I think.

This concerns the HTML snippet under section 4.10.7.2.5, The required attribute
at both these URLs:
  *
http://whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/common-input-element-attributes.html#attr-input-required
  *
http://w3.org/TR/html5/common-input-element-attributes.html#the-required-attribute

<input id="password2" type=password onforminput="setCustomValidity(value !=
password1.value ? 'Passwords do not match.' : '')">

I can get oninput="setCustomValidity..." to work in Firefox 4 Beta 6 (Windows),
but not onforminput="...".

You may wish to compare with this example,

http://w3.org/TR/html5/association-of-controls-and-forms.html#dom-cva-setcustomvalidity

I hope that helps. Keep up the great work!

Cheers,

Nick
