           Summary: Structured Clone 'Object' links to HTMLObjectElement?
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: travil@microsoft.com
         QAContact: public-html-bugzilla@w3.org

                    public-html@w3.org


In the algorithm for Safe Passing of Structured Data (2.8.5), the spec has the
following lines: 

&#8618;If input is an Object object
Let output be a newly constructed empty Object object.

In the second line, the reference to "Object" is a hyperlink that targets the
HTMLObjectElement. My guess is that this is just a mistake and does not imply
that HTMLObjectElements should be cloneable via this algorithm.

Please clarify this point if indeed HTMLObjectElements should be cloneable, or
remove the hyperlink otherwise.

Thanks.
