Greetings.  A question about DOMString type:

    Are DOMStrings supposed to be NULL-terminated (de facto
    C standard), or length-encoded (somehow)?

Nowhere can I find a specification for the format of a DOMString,
beyond "A DOMString is a sequence of 16-bit units" (CORE 1.1.5).

Please reply to me directly or cc as I am not on the mailing list.

Thanks.
