Hi again,

This week the following WHATWG patches up to and inc commit 7759 [1] have
been cherry-picked into the W3C HTML specification (master branch) for
HTML5.1. This takes us to WHATWG patches up to 17th March 2013 (i.e. we are
up-to-date).

You can see the actually committed patches here:
https://github.com/w3c/html/commits/master (18th March).

Change to Microdata:
* Instead of overriding namedItem() calls, shadow them, so both

of legacycaller from HTMLPropertiesCollection.

Note that I also cherry-picked changes to the TextTrack API and WebVTT, but
will make a separate post on this.

Please register a bug or reply to this email if you would like to see any
of the patches backported to HTML5.0 CR or have any other issues with the
applied patches. Note that no patches were picked for HTML5.0 CR.

Best Regards,
Silvia.
