I don't understand the question. If you mean where the HTML body element  
is special then I'd suggest you look at the event model for the HTML body  
element and how it interacts with the Document and Window objects. Or in  
CSS where the HTML body element has special rules for 'background' and  
'overflow'.

I have not replied in detail to the rest of your e-mail as it seems to be  
reiterating things you feel are issues with the draft but where I have  
already explained in the past how they are not.
