            Bug ID: 23672
           Summary: The datalist element content model needs clarification
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: CR HTML5 spec
          Assignee: robin@w3.org
          Reporter: jukka.k.korpela@kolumbus.fi

At 4.10.10 (The datalist element), the content model is given as phrasing
content or zero or more option elements. However, the prose then says that the
element can be used in two ways. The first way uses just option elements,
whereas in the second one, apparently with phrasing content, “the option
elements are provided inside a select element inside the datalist element”.

If this is meant to be restrictive, please clarify it in the content model,
requiring that the phrasing content must have at least one select element

If not, please modify the prose e.g. so that it says “In this case, the option
elements can, for example, be provided...”. It would be even better to add
another example that uses another technique, such as text that just mentions
(some of) the values as examples, implying that the user is expected to enter
he value in the text control.
