Dear HTML Working Group,

Please state what the result should be if the user aborts a download part 
way through retrieving an embedded resource [1]:

<p src="chicken.xhtml"> Some Chickens! </p>

If the user aborts downloading whilst the chicken.xhtml resource is only 
partially downloaded, is the chicken.xhtml resource successful or not?  And 
what should be rendered, the parts of chicken.xhtml that had been downloaded 
and rendered so far, or should the fallback content be rendered instead?

Is the behaviour any different if instead of a user initiated abort, there's 
an abort caused by the network?

Regards,

Jim.

[1] There is an assumption in this issue that incremental rendering is 
happening, that is something that is the subject of another issue, this 
issue may not be valid if no incremental rendering can happen in XHTML 2.0 
documents.
