           Summary: Missing normative reference to PDF
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW

         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)

PDF is mentioned in about 20 times in the HTML5 spec of which about 7 or 8 of
them are in normative text (such as the one below on HTMLImageElement).
However, there no reference that defines PDF.  I would recommend that it be ISO
32000-1:2008 as that reference is the international standard.  BUT since the
W3C has concerns over "pay-for-access" documents, please use the FREE version
of the standard that Adobe distributes (by agreement with ISO).  That document
can be found at http://www.adobe.com/devnet/acrobat/pdfs/PDF32000_2008.pdf.

Making this simple change will then ensure that there is no question about what
developers should be using if/when implementing support for PDF in their
products.
