--- Comment #20 from Henri Sivonen <hsivonen@iki.fi>  2009-08-28 07:41:11 ---
If I understand comment 18 right, the only change it makes to the current HTML
5 spec is flipping the detail that I called the only degree of freedom in
comment 13 the other way round. That is, compared to the current HTML 5 spec,
the difference is that a prefixless name expression wouldn't match a
no-namespace element node in a tree flagged as HTML.

I'm willing to pursue a patch with this change in Gecko if WebKit devs are also
willing to change WebKit likewise.

In any case, the spec text needs to be scoped to anything that causes XPath
expressions to be evaluated against an HTML DOM in a browser--not just
document.evaluate(). For example, this would also need to apply to invoking an
XSLT transform from JS with an HTML input document.
