           Summary: DomNode::normalize handling of text nodes
        QA Contact: public-webapps-bugzilla@w3.org
          Severity: normal
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: Windows NT
          Reporter: svitlant@microsoft.com
          Hardware: PC
            Status: NEW
           Version: unspecified
         Component: DOM
           Product: WebAppsWG


In the previous version of the specification
DomNode::normalize is explicitly said to remove empty text nodes. There is no
mention of how the empty nodes need to be handled in the new specification

In particular, I would really appreciate for a note on how the following
situation should be handled: an empty text node (text1) followed by a non-empty
text node (text2). According to the new specification, the content will be
concatenated in text1. However, this does not correspond to the behavior of
major browsers: major browsers detach text1 and leave text2 unchanged.
