That section says:

"2.1 Dependencies

This specification relies on several other underlying specifications.


     Many fundamental concepts from HTML are used by this specification. 

     The IDL blocks in this specification use the semantics of the 
WebIDL specification. [WEBIDL]"

How is a reader supposed to know that "resolve a URL", printed in bold, 
refers to a very specific algorithm in the HTML spec?
