[Bug 14204] New: CDATASection support missing from [DOMCORE] (DOM4)


           Summary: CDATASection support missing from [DOMCORE] (DOM4)
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: glenn@skynav.com

                CC: mike@w3.org, public-html-wg-issue-tracking@w3.org,

the current editor's draft specifies (in 2.2.2) that support for CDATASection
interface is required as defined in [DOMCORE] (aka DOM4);

however, [DOMCORE] does not define support for CDATASection and has marked it
(in 11.2) as having been 'removed to simplify the DOM platform'; note also that
the Document interface defined in [DOMCORE] 5.3 does not define the
createCDATASection() method that was included in DOM-[23] Core;

since HTML5 does in fact make numerous normative uses of CDATA and CDATASection
nodes, i would suggest that [DOMCORE] (DOM4) be modified to restore support for
CDATASection nodes and the Document.createCDATASection() method;
