           Summary: Parser errors on a meta tag attribute names
                    (msapplication-tooltip and msapplication-starturl).

I get this error from the HTML5 parser:

"Bad value msapplication-tooltip for attribute name on element meta: Keyword
msapplication-tooltip is not registered."

And:

"Bad value msapplication-starturl for attribute name on element meta: Keyword
msapplication-starturl is not registered."

The error says you "can register metadata names on the WHATWG wiki yourself" so
I followed the link to see if it was registered and they both are, unless I
misunderstanding what the error is telling me.

The following is copied from the Registered Extensions table off the Wiki:

msapplication-tooltip 

"Jump List" or "Pinned Sites" in Windows 7 
The "msapplication-tooltip" metadata provides additional tooltip text that
appears when you hover over the Pinned Site shortcut in the Windows Start menu
or on the desktop.

<meta name="msapplication-tooltip" content="Channel 9 Podcasts" />

Declaring Pinned Site Metadata 

and

msapplication-starturl 

"Jump List" or "Pinned Sites" in Windows 7 
The "msapplication-starturl" metadata contains the root URL of the application.
The start URL can be fully qualified, or relative to the current document. Only
HTTP and HTTPS protocols are allowed. If this element is missing, the address
of the current page is used instead.
 <meta name="msapplication-starturl" content="./" />

Declaring Pinned Site Metadata 

On my site at http://www.sivill.com/index.html the parser gives these errors:

Validation Output: 2 Errors 

Line 10, Column 69: Bad value msapplication-tooltip for attribute name on
element meta: Keyword msapplication-tooltip is not registered.

<meta name="msapplication-tooltip" content="GSComputing Web Site"  />

Syntax of metadata name:A metadata name listed in the HTML specification or
listed in the WHATWG wiki. You can register metadata names on the WHATWG wiki
yourself.

 Line 11, Column 51: Bad value msapplication-starturl for attribute name on
element meta: Keyword msapplication-starturl is not registered.

<meta name="msapplication-starturl" content="./" />

Syntax of metadata name:A metadata name listed in the HTML specification or
listed in the WHATWG wiki. You can register metadata names on the WHATWG wiki
yourself.

I think this is an error in the parser and these lines in my HTML code should
not be being errored.
