Ms2ger,

the same old issue with referencing a released spec or not... that was heavily discussed!
Or am I wrong?
Is there any reason that makes that sentence obsolete in DOM 2?
I would have no issue that the clipboard document references both but it would become unreleasable if it had to rely on specifications that are not released.

MathML for CSS had to suspend its becoming of a REC because CSS 2.1 and 3 weren't released yet... and this sounds like normal. It did not take very long in this case.

I like Hallvord's response to this.
