Hello,

In the previous version of the specification
(http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-3-Core/core.html#ID-normalize)
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
(http://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#dom-node-normalize).

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.

Thanks,
Svitlana
