Update of /sources/public/html5/workers
In directory hutz:/tmp/cvs-serv12108

Modified Files:
	Overview.html 
Log Message:
Change how the global scope objects are exposed in workers so that dedicated workers and shared workers have global scopes with different interface names, since they are different interfaces. This patch also fixes some TOPIC lines for the intro of the spec. (whatwg r6846)
