           Summary: Rules for parsing non-negative integers should re-use
                    rules for parsing signed integers and add a >= 0 check
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW

          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)

It would make things easier for everyone: increase readability, reduce chances
of errors, of inconsistency, ...
In addition, it would fix the following bug in the specs:
"-0" is currently considered as an invalid value according at the rules for
parsing non-negative integers which means if "-0" is set to a content
attribute, the IDL attribute should return the default value. This is not what
implementations I've tested (Presto, Webkit, Gecko) seem to do: "-0" is parsed
as "0".
