Hi Jim,

Thanks for the feedback.

Perfect. Did you have a particular structure in mind for these tests?
Manual testing seemed the easiest for most assertions - explained below.

Please again refer to testdom001 [1] below. Here we:

(a) specify type="http://www.w3.org/TR/scxml/#DOMEventProcessor"
(b) use a CSS selector to select the target node ( target="#targetNode" )
(c) do not support interfaces other than 'CustomEvent', the default.
(d) node content only gets updated for event types equal to the send
"event" attribute value ('setcontent') [4].
(e) in the target node 'setcontent' event handler [4], both 'bubbles' and
'cancelable' can be inspected - which will be the default values for those
as they are not specified in the SCXML.
(f) for 'CustomEvent'(s) it seems there are no "any other initializable
attributes" right? only supporting the *must*s, so no other interfaces than
'CustomEvent' for now.
(g) the value for detail can also be read in the 'setcontent' handler [4].

Essentially, final stages are only reached if the prerequisites are in
Not very scientific, but some aspects are a little hard to isolate in a way
that makes sense, so hoping the above is good enough.

Please see testdom002 [2] ( supplying attribute, interface="invalid" ) and
testdom003 [3] ( supplying attribute, target="#invalid" ).
Both these should have the Outcome 'pass' if error.communication lands on
the internal event queue.

Back to testdom001 [1]. Clicking the button here [5] should place the
'click' event on the SCXML interpreter's event queue. The transition here
[6] tests for it. We could add a cond attribute testing the _event.data
contents there if you don't mind specifying what it should be?

Here are some quick instructions for anyone to run the tests mentioned (not
streamlined, as these are rather ad-hoc).

- follow steps 1-2 here [7]
- in build.hxml [8] line 90-92, comment all tests except the one interested
- run "haxe build.hxml"
- open index.html [9]
