To: public-html-commits@w3.org
Message-Id: <E1NzjV3-0006Rf-Nb@lionel-hutz.w3.org>
Update of /sources/public/html5/spec-author-view
In directory hutz:/tmp/cvs-serv24741

Modified Files:
	Overview.html infrastructure.html spec.html 
Log Message:
Revamp how <object> type handling works, as the previous model was getting impenetrable and didn't match _any_ browsers. This one should more or less match Gecko and avoids known security problems with the previous model. Please let me know if you're a browser vendor and cannot implement this for whatever reason. (whatwg r4985)
