Hallo!

The section about HTML5 tree construction (http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/tokenization.html#tree-construction version from 24 June 2010) does not say a word about many HTML Elements (e.g. "video", "audio", "canvas", "map", "label", "datalist", "output", "progress", "meter", "summary", maybe some more, but I stopped finding that out).

And I also read
<cite>
8.2.5.10 The "in body" insertion mode
Status: Last call for comments
</cite>

That sounds as if this document is nearly finished, though so much information is missing.

In the Latest Editor's Draft: http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html I see that some of the previously listed elements ("video", "audio") are mentioned, but not in the tree construction section.

When will the tree construction section be updated to contain all necessary information to parse HTML5 and construct a tree correctly?

Thanks and ciao
Felix
