[Bug 12840] New: The example cache manifest file is never explicitly named, yet referred to by name "clock.appcache" later. Suggest adding a line "# clock.appcache" to the top, which would be consistent with the previous example files, and also demonstrate the comment syn

[Bug 12844] New: Remove the label attribute from subclasses of HTMLElement

[Bug 12846] New: The beforeprint and afterprint shouldn't fire if the user at any time cancels the print request. These events would imply that the user actually printed. Perhaps there should be an onprint event that fired when it is actually sent to the "printer".

[Bug 12848] New: "Subtitle" I am deaf. I love html5, it is wonderful tool. One problem with html5 video is no subtitle or closed caption. I would like you to add feature that all html5 video support closed caption subtitle. We can add file of subtitle to website with htnm

[Bug 12854] New: I am quite surprised to see that things such as the list of allowed values for the "rel" attribute of the "link" tag (aka. the list of link types) as well as the list of allowed values for the "name" attribute of the "meta" tag are supposed to be listed o

[Bug 12856] New: Saying that "The dirty value flag <...> must be set to true whenever the user interacts with the control" is highly misleading. <> says t

[Bug 12858] New: This doesn't actually define "align descendants". It says which descendants are to be aligned, but not what's supposed to happen to them. Is it like floating, or something else?

[Bug 12879] New: Object does not support the property in internet explorer.

[Bug 12880] New: I think the boolean attributes are generally a bad idea in HTML5 given that the intended bare syntax can't be represented in the XML syntax, and that you're effectively encouraging people to break XML compatibility for no good reason. So I'm not happy to

[Bug 12881] New: "is expected to hide it" is a bit vague. Clarify that it means display:none.

[Bug 12882] New: <b> and <strong> should be "font-weight: bolder" (both logically and to match the CSS2 default stylesheet)

[Bug 12900] New: A global attribute "contentaddedbyeditor" would be incredibly useful when testing for accessibility. It would be great to be able to distinguish between the template a template developer has produced, and the content which an editor then fills into the t

[Bug 12901] New: Keep up the great work... One suggestion. Could you please align the Microdata part of the spec with Microformats and/or RDFa, instead of jnust defining yet another random markup. It would be really helpful for alot of developers who have invested time an

[Bug 12903] New: HTML5 need to have a fullscreen abitity - like flash had (has) - for embedded video streams

[Bug 12905] New: For the attribute "required" of checkbox element, I think it should be defined as "at least one is required" but not "which fields are required". So it's better use the same constraint validation with the radio element. That is if an element in the check

[Bug 12906] New: Canvas should not pretend that it can be used to replace some input elements

[Bug 12907] New: The algorithm for parsing a legacy color value, steps 2 and 3, should be reversed. Given a case where string is a tab for instance, it should be treated as an empty string.

[Bug 12908] New: How come we leave the first 128 characters and then divide the string into three equal parts? Last time I checked, 128 % 3 == 2.

[Bug 12910] New: I think step 7 and 10 are pretty much the same thing, ie. s/[:alnum:]/0/g.

[Bug 12911] New: Incorrect order of "a" properties in itemref example

[Bug 12915] New: Accept Arabic and Persian Unicode digits in <input type=number>

[Bug 12918] New: I found that you limited the keywords acceptable for the meta-name attribute and for the link-rel attribute. In the specs you use exhaustive lists of allowed keywords. In my opinion you should only suggest keywords. See also

[Bug 12945] New: "On setting, if the given element has an id attribute, then the content attribute must be set to the value of that id attribute. Otherwise, the IDL attribute must be set to the empty string." is strange and breaks reflection. If the given element isn't in

[Bug 12946] New: "first img element descendant of the element" doesn't define properly which element. First in document order?

[Bug 12948] New: New feature request: GROUP tag What I'd like to achieve in HTML is to easily access a group of elements via Javascript using a single parent element (GROUP). The GROUP element would not under any circumstance affect the layout of the page, and would not b

[Bug 12957] New: Is it possible to supply new semantic tag, just like <img>, <canvas> and <audio>, to support view and edit ODF document or PDF document in brower? These document formats are widely used. We hope they can be manipulated in brower directly with the help of

[Bug 12959] New: It would probably be a good idea to "The noscript element must not be used in XML documents." above "The noscript element must not be used in XML documents."

[Bug 12972] New: The IDL parts in this section contain what I believe to be non-valid WebIDL, specifically "Element?" and "object?" - both interface types and object are already nullable, so the ? is invalid.
