[Bug 12230] New: From this algorithm it does not seem to follow that dispatching a synthetic non-canceled submit event at a form causes it to be submitted. Yet that is what browsers implement. So that forms have a default handler for submit events should probably be split

           Summary: From this algorithm it does not seem to follow that
                    dispatching a synthetic non-canceled submit event at a
                    form causes it to be submitted. Yet that is what
                    browsers implement. So that forms have a default
                    handler for submit events should probably be split

>From this algorithm it does not seem to follow that dispatching a synthetic
non-canceled submit event at a form causes it to be submitted. Yet that is
what browsers implement. So that forms have a default handler for submit
events should probably be split from steps that cause such an event to be
submitted.
