Hi James,

The HTML Working Group is using a bugzilla instance as its primary tracking
tool for comments on the HTML5 spec and other deliverables of the group.

So, if you would be amenable taking the same problem description and
potential solution that you've outlined here, and raising it as a new bug
in our bugzilla, that'd be the preferred way to get it on the radar for the
editor, the group, and the chairs for the group.

You can file a new bug here:


I think you probably have a bugzilla account already. But if you have any
problems accessing it, or figuring out what your password is, please just
let me know.

Otherwise, if you'd rather not deal with getting it into bugzilla yourself,
I can raise a new bug for it there myself, and link it to the copy of this
message (and any subsequent thread) in our mail archives.
