[Bug 5821] meta/@scheme missing

[Bug 7542] Remove Section 5. Microdata

[Bug 8079] "the document is therefore required to use UTF-8 as its encoding" - this sounds like it's intended as an informative restatement of the conformance requirements in #character-encoding-declaration, in which case it shouldn't use the normative keyword "requ

[Bug 8092] HTMLCollection subclass interfaces are incompatible with static languages

[Bug 8093] Why is the browsing context name reset on domain navigation?

[Bug 8094] It's not very clear whether or not this includes word-style, squiggly-line, as-you-type spell-checking. This feature sounds like more of a manual spell-check done after a body of text is completed. Should a spell-check option be added to the CSS spec for

[Bug 8095] link's "type" attribute could be used to advertise available representations if it were linked to the Accept: header per Mike Kelly's thread(s)

[Bug 8096] <link>'s "type" attribute should be allowed to appear multiple times and/or should allow for a space separated list of advertised types, such that clients can request them via the Accept: header.

[Bug 8097] Link relation types should use the IANA registry per draft-nottingham-http-link-header

[Bug 8100] typo : double "the"

[Bug 8101] typo: doubled "the"

[Bug 8102] typo: doubled "the", and that two times.

[Bug 8103] typo: doubled "the", and that two times.

[Bug 8105] typo: doubled "the"

[Bug 8106] typo: doubled "the"

[Bug 8107] I dont think that itemid should be prohibited if there is no itemtype. Several of the use cases would work fine with an id but no type

[Bug 8108] There is no reference about the mouseover event judgment when the element(iframe,canvas, etc..) including the transparent shade comes in succession mutually, and it embarrasses it. I hope the judgment to be done as seen.

[Bug 8109] I'm looking for the API proposal of accessing metadata of media files. For example, I'll want to access metadata of audio files for to get it's title, artists, etc. Or, if I need to get the shooting time of photo, I'll want to get it from JPEG's EXIF

[Bug 8110] <table border=adsf> should also have 1px border

[Bug 8111] when <table border> is present, the border-width of the table's th and td should be set to 1px as a presentational hint

[Bug 8112] the border-style on table and td, th should only be set when <table border> is present

[Bug 8113] checking should be cancelable

[Bug 8114] Section "months" should be renamed to "year-months". This is clearer, and allows the spec to add a section just handling months (without years) in the future.

[Bug 8115] The note on time-zone ranges is too absolute in stating the limits from -12 to +14 and 00/30/45 minutes. Add the word "currently" in to the note.

[Bug 8116] URNs are URIs but not URLs

[Bug 8117] "trusted" is underlined but not a link -- missing definition? Or does the following 'i.e.' define it?

[Bug 8120] Shoud their be any reason that two circles, pure white, alpha =1, drawn in xor mode, do not overlap each other perfectly and then do not "cancel" each other ? (this works with rects). Same effect in Safari and firefox. Thanks

[Bug 8121] what does this do?

[Bug 8125] Can it be specified somewhere that script can define a variable named "top" with 'var top' in a global context? This is currently inconsistent across browsers.

[Bug 8135] "The script element has a src attribute set where previously the element had no such attribute." - should probably only happen if the script is in a document at the time, else would break (th

[Bug 8136] "the DOM text attribute" - s/DOM/IDL/ [pt]

[Bug 8137] In the scripting-enabled case, noscript outside head has to be conforming if replaced by its parsed text, but noscript inside head doesn't (so <noscript><meta bogus></noscript> is allowed); they ought to consistently require conformingness. [pt]

[Bug 8138] in aside for blogrolls example <h1>My last post</h1> appears twice, 2nd one should probably be <h1>My first post</h1>

[Bug 8139] In #the-section-element the graduation programme example code formatting is strange—closing brackets have been moved to the subsequent line, elements have been first-letter capitalised

[Bug 8140] Consider adding color IDL attribute (IE, Gecko). [ms]

[Bug 8141] Add hr color content attribute [ms]

[Bug 8142] title: "abbr; dfn;" - remove ";" [ms]

[Bug 8144] Is a 'visibility: hidden' element being rendered?

[Bug 8145] Unclear: "Certain algorithms in this specification spoon-feed the parser characters one *string* at a time." Better: "one character at a time"?

[Bug 8147] The suggested size limit is absurd considering the multi-GB space available on even the cheapest netbooks these days. We need a clear "I want this much, how much did the user and his agent allow me to have?" API. Otherwise, online media apps like photo al

[Bug 8150] In the description for article, you talk about "Web log posts" but in the example, you use the much more common and understood "blog post". I think the latter should be used throughout. (I would even go so far as to suggest that "Web log" has lost meaning

[Bug 8151] "If the resulting value is not a recognized language code, then it must be treated as an unknown language (as if the value was the empty string)." -- consider how this interacts with CSS :lang(), with passthrough/roundtripping, screen readers that recogni

[Bug 8152] Remove the <progress> and <meter> fallback magic

[Bug 8153] "The default is start. Other values are ignored." (et passim) would read better if the sentences are reversed ("possible values are [...]. Other values are ignored. The default is [...].")

[Bug 8156] I think the "the" is extraneous. Should be "It indicates that no referrer information is to be leaked..."

[Bug 8173] Last paragraph, first (only) sentence; add the "to" in brackets ([]) as follows: "are expected to distribute the remainder first [to] the last entry whose unit is relative"

[Bug 8187] Section 4.8.7 on video makes no reference to audio description

[Bug 8207] Change definition of URL to normative reference to IRIBIS

[Bug 8412] New: To prevent sites from loading gigabytes of data, shouldn't the user agent explicitly mention the size of the files in the manifest. (This would also require a check during the downloading process, as to whether the provided sizes are real)

[Bug 8413] New: Please ensure "valid date string" supports non yyyy-mm-dd formats (UK = ddmmyyyy for example)

[Bug 8414] New: Shouldn't the example pattern be "^[0-9][A-Z]{3}$"? The current example would succeed with any string containing a part number, and not just a string that is one.

[Bug 8415] New: Nested browsing contexts don't get unloaded currently. I'm guessing that unloading a document should do it for the nested ones too?

[Bug 8416] New: The "Fragment identifier loop" part of the "update the session history with the new page" algorithm should spin the event loop instead of just hanging the browser... Also, the last step in that algorithm should jump back to the frag id loop step, not the

[Bug 8417] New: "user agents must yield to whatever script invoked the navigation steps" should also allow tasks to continue, with the rest of the algorithm being async, so that the event loop doesn't block waiting for data.

[Bug 8418] New: Consider coining the term "entry script" instead of the confusing "first script".

[Bug 8419] Maybe use a different attribute value than "be evil"

[Bug 8419] New: Maybe use a different attribute value than "be evil"

[Bug 8423] New: Shouldn't the datalist element be allowed to contain optgroup elements as well as option elements?

[Bug 8428] New: The first document.getItems() example should use the type "" instead of ""

[Bug 8430] New: 3.5.4 Minor typo 'thee' instead of 'the'.

[Bug 8435] New: should figure out where in HTML5 to say that WebSocket and XHR connections get closed when the document is unloaded.

[Bug 8436] New: "granularity that is expected (and required) of the value, by limiting the allowed values" -- granularity requirments may often be different for validation versus usability/ui-control purposes. There should be a 'step' for possible GUI controls and an oth

[Bug 8445] New: the picture from wf2 showing url autocomplete seems to have disappeared

[Bug 8446] New: we should add an example here showing a webmail client providing autocomplete suggestions for <input multiple type=email list=contacts> while the UA adds its own suggestions from the platform's native contacts database.

[Bug 8452] New: It would be really helpful if the current mouse position could be derived from the drag event.

[Bug 8455] New: "></samp>" lines in Zork example try to close an already-closed tag

[Bug 8457] New: "scripts and form controls in such sections still render execute and submit respectively" - s/render// [pt]

[Bug 8459] New: "For instance, a user agent might wait 500ms or 512 bytes, whichever came first." -- IMO this is a bad example, over a satellite link the typical RTT might be 600-1500ms. Or is the assumption that the counting starts after the first packet of data is rece

[Bug 8485] New: "Otherwise, if the col element has no span attribute, or if trying to parse the attribute's value resulted in an error, then let span be 1.": This should account (again) for span=0. [ms]

[Bug 8493] New: I think <hr> element should represent NOT ONLY a paragraph-level thematic break BUT ALSO a separator between flow contents, for backword compatibility.

[Bug 8513] New: AFAICT from WebIDL, ports can never be null, so step 3 is a no-op. If the sequence should be nullable, it has to be written with a question mark in the IDL, I think. [sp]

[Bug 8514] New: Shouldn't port1 and port2 be start()ed when the constructor in called? [sp]

[Bug 8515] New: Would be nice to clarify how this interacts with https. Many browsers do not cache https data to disk at all and it would be nice for https based applications to have some way to take advantage of disk based cache for non-sensitive data.
