In the latest editor's draft (4 Sep. 2011) which can be found at
http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/DOM-Level-3-Events/html/DOM3-Events.html there is
an error in the definition for the MouseWheel.initWheelEvent(...) method.
http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/DOM-Level-3-Events/html/DOM3-Events.html#events-event-type-initWheelEvent

In it is a parameter called modifiersListArg of type DOMString. The
specification tells you to "Refer to the MouseEvent.initMouseEvent() method for
a description of this parameter." Following the link to look at initMouseEvent
shows that MouseEvent.initMouseEvent does not accept this parameter - in fact,
it does not accept any DOMString parameter!

I think that modifiersListArg is an error with the specification. If not,
please correct me and tell me what it is for and how to deal with it.

Thanks,
Brandon
