           Summary: 2.1.4 DOM Core versus DOM L3 Events reference
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: travil@microsoft.com
         QAContact: public-html-bugzilla@w3.org

DOM L3 Events has appropriate descriptions for each of these behaviors, as well
as a more complete discussion of other event-related information. Also, given
DOM L3 Events is in a more more “stable” point along the REC track, it makes
more sense to reference it. Referencing completed, stable standards is
important for Microsoft and our customers (who build on top of our software).

Existing Text:
In the contexts of events, the terms fire and dispatch are used as defined in
the DOM Core specification: firing an event means to create and dispatch it,
and dispatching an event means to follow the steps that propagate the event
through the tree. The term trusted event is used to refer to events that have
the trusted flag set. [DOMCORE]

Suggested change: 
Reference to DOM L3 Events here instead of Web DOM Core.
