The fourth point under
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#dom-document-write-html
says "or when the processing of the tokeniser is aborted by the tree  
construction stage (this can happen if a script  start tag token is  
emitted by the tokeniser)".

Shouldn't that be the *end* tag now that the parsing algorithm is  
purely tokenizer-push and the tree builder-pull bits are gone?

Aside: "Aborted" suggests that the tokenizer no longer continues. I  
suggest saying "blocked" to suggest that the tokenizer will continue  
later.
