           Summary: Event handler attributes should ignore event's interface
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW

The spec says

[[
onabort

Must be invoked whenever an abort event is targeted at or bubbles through the
element or object.
]]

where "abort" is linked to a definition saying it's a ProgressEvent.

But Firefox, Opera and WebKit ignore the event's interface altogether.


It would be good if the spec made this clear, e.g. by saying "an event of type
'abort'" and maybe even not linking to #event-abort. And maybe have a note
somewhere saying that the event's interface is ignored (other than maybe for
onbeforeunload -- it seems WebKit and Opera require the right interface but
Firefox not).
