Chris & Cameron,

cheers for your responses, I don't spend enough time with the specs,

You are right, its very terse - its intended as a reference, not a
definition. And you are also correct that there is nowhere listed to
find a fuller description.

We should change "key events" to "key events, described in the [DOM
Level 3 Events] specification." where the square brackets denote a
link anchor as with other references.
