2nd CfC: Close ISSUE-148 charset-detect by Amicable Resolution

2nd Last Call for RDFa Core 1.1 and XHTML+RDFa 1.1

[Bug 10908] :enabled and :disabled should apply on <fieldset> and <optgroup>

[Bug 10910] Submit controls should be barred from constraint validation in favor of a new pseudo-class

[Bug 10911] Datalist descendants shouldn't be barred from constraint validation

[Bug 10912] <output> should not be barred from constraint validation

[Bug 10913] Input element's value should not be sanitized during parsing

[Bug 12210] New: :indeterminate should apply to progress element when in the indeterminate state

[Bug 12211] New: WebSocket open method

[Bug 12213] New: What!? Is this a joke, if I get the value of an input element in 'filename' mode, I get the filename with an extra string prepended to it, so that to use the filename I will always have to strip the first 12 characters? That is really messed up.

[Bug 12214] New: Canvas fallback content implementation is underspecified

[Bug 12217] New: Suggestion: Allow other 'Content-Type's to result from javascript: scheme URI dereferencing

[Bug 12218] New: how to automatic install adove flash

[Bug 12219] New: how to automatic install adove flash

[Bug 12220] New: Make sure rules for parsing a float are the same in HTML and in Javascript specifications

[Bug 12221] New: Should Structured Clone preserve property descriptors?

[Bug 12222] New: Drop rel=external. It doesn't do anything anywhere. Pages that use it mostly use it as a scripting hook to inject target=_blank to get around validation.

[Bug 12223] New: Drop rel=help. It's for showing a button in the browser's UI which no browser shows by default. It doesn't seem to be helpful for users, so just wastes authors' time.

[Bug 12224] New: Drop rel=pingback. The Pingback spec seems dead and unused, and redundant with the Referer header.

[Bug 12225] New: Drop rel=tag. It doesn't seem to be used and doesn't seem to do anything useful.

[Bug 12226] New: incorrect example in section 1.9.2 syntax errors

[Bug 12227] New: The readyState check in the "potentially playing" definition should not be used to influence GC of media elements

[Bug 12228] New: All Media Elements should have the ability to have both short and longer textual descriptions associated to the element.

[Bug 12230] New: From this algorithm it does not seem to follow that dispatching a synthetic non-canceled submit event at a form causes it to be submitted. Yet that is what browsers implement. So that forms have a default handler for submit events should probably be split

[Bug 12231] New: typo: distingushing; this typo also appears in MIMESNIFF

[Bug 12232] New: Progress element should be shown vertically when height>width

[Bug 12235] New: Make <xmp> conforming

[Bug 12236] New: s/port of a sequence/part of a sequence/

[Bug 12237] New: The MIME type for multipart/form-data needs "boundary=" inserted as well. Please do not make it part of the boundary string by the way.

[Bug 12239] New: DrawImage() typographic error

[Bug 12240] New: "The values 'true' and 'false' are not allowed on boolean attributes." - this also implies that "false" is not a valid attribute name, since ... false="false" ... (meaning the "false" property is 'true') would not be permitted in XML serialization

[Bug 12241] New: Should form="" always make the input unassociated?

[Bug 12242] New: Make UTF-16 an invalid encoding in Polyglot Markup

[Bug 12243] New: Warn when ARIA-describedby/-labelledby points to interactive/form associated content

[Bug 12244] New: Warn when interactive/forms associated content appears inside role=childrenArePresentational elements

[Bug 12245] New: @size on <select> drop-downs is not enough to specify the drop-down maxlength on long options lists with scrollbars

[Bug 12246] New: Say 'the/a BOM character' througout - there isn't different 'BOMs' (plural)

[Bug 12247] New: <section> is not associated with the conceptual section it creates

[Bug 12249] New: server side evens

[Bug 12250] New: Maybe tweak wording on <footer>

[Bug 12251] New: The idea of limited-scope style elements is useful, but it causes compability issues. Current browsers ignore the scope attribute and apply the style to the entire document. It is probably better (safe) to ignore a style sheet that is meant to be scoped t

[Bug 12252] New: #appcache Tests: 0 Demos: 0 Latest Internet Explorer beta: no support whatsoever Latest Firefox trunk nightly build: no support whatsoever Latest WebKit or Chromium trunk build: no support whatsoever Latest Opera beta or preview build: no support wh

[Bug 12254] New: Investigate if <progress> element wouldn't need to be form-associated element

[Bug 12255] New: option.label and option.value could be consistent

[Bug 12256] New: <input type=number value=""> should be valid?

[Bug 12257] New: Fix onchange example just before

[Bug 12258] New: The example under "It could equally well be written as follows:" is incorrect and is missing images/sound-icon.png and images/background.png from the above example

[Bug 12260] New: a a a a a a a

[Bug 12262] New: select(), selectionStart, selectionEnd and setSelectionRange() should apply to <input type='email'>

[Bug 12263] New: Worker limitation

[Bug 12264] New: Point 3. ("Otherwise, split the underlying string on spaces to get the list of tokens in the object's underlying string.") is not needed, because after point 2. there are no space characters left.

[Bug 12265] New: Step 3. should s/object's underlying string/DOMTokenList object's underlying string/ for clarity

[Bug 12266] New: 하이 좋은 서비스다.

[Bug 12267] New: Make video state transitions happen in the same task as firing events

[Bug 12269] New: If step is the required increase or decrease of the value, is there any way to declare the value used by stepUp() and stepDown()? I had been using step as the number to increase/decrease the value when the up/down arrows were clicked in Chrome, but new bu

[Bug 12270] New: OnProgress event

[Bug 12271] New: <input list=""> needs an event triggered on selection of suggestion

[Bug 12273] New: sda ads asd qwr 12 efg saf 12 fasf

[Bug 12274] New: Spelling mistakes in a few sections

[Bug 12275] New: Null case: Missing "Create a new DOCTYPE token."

[Bug 12276] New: In the HTTP spec, the and that's what's related to http-equiv, it's Content-Type, not content-type etc.. I think the current definition of http-equiv needs to be revised.

[Bug 12277] New: Need to check whether browsers follow this (or are willing to), and if so, spec it:

[Bug 12278] New: [polyglot] i18n: Make lang and xml:lang required on the root element.

[Bug 12279] New: [polyglot] Add section on http-equiv and HTTP

[Bug 12282] New: If the given browsing context name is _parent, then the chosen browsing context must be the parent browsing context of the current one, unless there isn't one, in which case the chosen browsing context must be the current browsing context.

[Bug 12283] New: No indication of parsing error

[Bug 12284] New: How about call the new standard "HML". Then my "C" program won't have to check for a '4 or 3' character word. we will already know the word is 3 characters.

[Bug 12285] New: setInterval should clamp to 4ms like setTimeout does, not 10ms

[Bug 12286] New: PropertyValueArray shouldn't use sequence<...>, see — it should be a method, for one.

[Bug 12288] New: select.size should be limited to non-negative numbers instead of non-negative numbers greater than zero

[Bug 12289] New: suspend event "Dispatched when..." is incorrect

[Bug 12290] New: The user agent must allow the element to be focused, should allow the element to be reached using sequential focus navigation, and should place the element in the sequential focus navigation order so that it is:

[Bug 12291] New: what is canvas

[Bug 12292] New: Use of <teaser> or similar construct for a reference to an external article.

[Bug 12293] New: Syntax error in the example, the INPUT start tag ends in />

[Bug 12296] New: Whitespace handling here doesn't match ES, or Gecko, or Opera. Is there some reason to not just say it works the same as parseInt? Test case alerts 2 in Firefox and Opera (like parseInt()), 0 in Chrome: data:text/html,<!doctype html><input tabindex="&nb

[Bug 12297] New: Please specify how to handle space, tab and carriage return in title attribute values

[Bug 12298] New: wrong interface referenced in index - interfaces - "col" element

[Bug 12299] New: The (normative and non-normative) assertion that tokenlist.item(index) / tokenlist[index] returns null for index>=length appears to be in conflict with WebIDL, at least for the index property case; afaict WebIDL requires that index property getters throw

[Bug 12301] New: Make empty-named radio buttons not belong to a group

[Bug 12302] New: normatively refers to but does not include MouseEvent

[Bug 12303] New: TextTrack is missing an IDL attribute for @default

[Bug 12305] New: how about presenting date and time in local format to the user?

[Bug 12306] New: "When authors use the canvas element, they must also provide content that, when presented to the user, conveys essentially the same function or purpose as the bitmap canvas." While everyone can probably agree that alternative content is a good idea when f

[Bug 12308] New: Test my comment hello.

[Bug 12309] New: Need to taint canvas when a non-CORS cross-site font is in the .font

[Bug 12311] New: new feature - client side templates

[Bug 12312] New: This says "The codecs parameter, which certain MIME types define, might be necessary to specify exactly how the resource is encoded." Is this completely up to the browser to decide? Are there any instructions for browsers on how to respond if the codecs a

[Bug 12317] New: Case for NULL character is missing the text "Create a new DOCTYPE token."

[Bug 12318] New: feature request: a more semantic tag for non-intl-measures?

[Bug 12319] New: Typo: outlinee -> outline

[Bug 12322] New: [Polyglot] "Required Elements" - clarify use of <colgroup> and more.

[Bug 12323] New: Make "tables should not be used for layout" informative

[Bug 12324] New: HTML example is improperly formatted

[Bug 12325] New: Consequences of <table role=presentation> (layout tables)

[Bug 12326] New: The wrap attribute lacks the value "off", which is consistently supported by major browsers and corresponds to the old default behavior, which is still reflected in the HTML 4.01 Recommendation. Please add it and modify the definition of "soft" according

[Bug 12329] New: vai pro caralho

[Bug 12330] New: vai pro caralho

[Bug 12331] New: Not sure what is the difference between all three views

[Bug 12332] New: editorial: duplicate "appropriate", "image/*" where "audio/*" is meant

[Bug 12334] New: make <a name> valid again in HTML5

[Bug 12335] New: Chrome appears to support the input type:time

[Bug 12336] New: Whenever the toDataURL() method

[Bug 12337] New: "are to be" and "are not to be" should be "should be" and "should not be" respectively, for consistency with the following paragraphs.

[Bug 12338] New: the <dfn> for initialTime doesn't have a <code>

[Bug 12339] New: We should mention that UAs may use a different clock than the wall clock for defining the rate of time in the media timeline, specifically so that they are allowed to use the soundcard clock to ensure reliable audio playback.

[Bug 12341] New: Unclear what "any characters in the value that are not valid in the <ifragment> production" means

[Bug 12342] New: no need to repeat content of examples; each example should have only new content (currently yellow); that will make document smaller for printing and more readable

[Bug 12343] New: Closing tag for paragraph?

[Bug 12344] New: in 3.2.2, in this sentence:'he nodes representing HTML elements in the DOM implement,', the word 'must' does not appear. The sentence should be 'he nodes representing HTML elements in the DOM must implement,'

[Bug 12346] New: Please ensure. Can you ensure? I don't.

[Bug 12347] New: Add textarea { resize: both; }

[Bug 12349] New: Should mention that anywhere that expects flow content implicitly also expects phrasing content, and so forth for embedded content.

[Bug 12350] New: Should mention that in the "parents" column, categories refer to elements that _expect_ that category, not elements of those categories...

[Bug 12351] New: Consider changing 'the same object' to 'the same such object' when talking about live objects in various places in the spec, for pedantism...

[Bug 12352] New: Is a list of name/value pairs a valid table, even though it is technically only a one-dimensional associative array, since it requires two columns?

[Bug 12353] New: Is a list of name/value pairs a valid table, even though it is technically only a one-dimensional associative array, since it requires two columns?

[Bug 12354] New: "If the poster attribute's value is the empty string" should also say "or if it is absent", since the algorithm is invoked when the attribute is removed too.

[Bug 12355] New: It would be great to be eable to "scope" some styles but with a CSS file, not into the HTML code itself. What about a src attribute on style, a scoped attribute on link tag, or some specific syntax into the CSS file ?

[Bug 12356] New: Shouldn't the widely deployed rel="copyright" be used instead of rel="license", or at least defined as a synonym for it.

[Bug 12357] New: Text in a MathML text integration point doesn't behave as in an HTML integration point

[Bug 12358] New: typo: "still have a paused attribute this is true"

[Bug 12359] New: If the content model says it can only contain dt and dd elements then why does it say further down "if a dl contains [...] elements other than dt and dd [...]?

[Bug 12360] New: It seems more accurate to say that the media element "is not currently playing" instead of saying "is paused or not". The phrase "is paused" seems to imply that it's been manually paused by the user, but this would not apply when a page is first viewed an

[Bug 12361] New: The "implementation status" for the events doesn't seem to be up to date. For example the canplaythrough event seems to work in Chrome, even though the status says it's not supported by any browser.

[Bug 12362] New: test test test tets

[Bug 12363] New: Include @longdesc in Microdata

[Bug 12364] New: which is "the first selected video track"?

[Bug 12365] New: Add @fullsize to <img>

[Bug 12368] New: this is a test

[Bug 12371] New: yes it is

[Bug 12372] New: Rules for parsing a legacy color value should strip whitespace or something

[Bug 12373] New: If I understand this correctly, there is no need for h2-h6. Just h1 is enough? I think it should be made more clear how heading ranks work, both implicitly and explicitly.

[Bug 12374] New: "stylistically offset" means that this element has no semantic value whatsoever? It is jsut for style purpose? Then why not use a span? It seems strange to me that there is no specific element to mark up people. Even though there is a load of microdata av

[Bug 12375] New: What U Say?

[Bug 12377] New: cant get rid of this reauester

[Bug 12378] New: Is that working?

[Bug 12379] New: We should encourage authors to use standard mark-up without highlighting vendor prefixes

[Bug 12380] New: i hope, flash is dead. html5 should roule!

[Bug 12382] New: The traverse the history by a delta algorithm breaks down if a history traversal is already queued.

[Bug 12390] New: A sandboxed MIME type attribute would be better than a fully qualified MIME type

[Bug 12391] New: showModalDialog() should be blocked by sandbox attribute

[Bug 12392] New: Behavior for target attribute links should be better defined for sandboxed contexts

[Bug 12399] New: Expose statistics for media elements

[Bug 12401] New: "The noscript element must not be used in XML documents." "[...] it has no effect in the XHTML syntax." Why is this? Is this to intentionally confuse or restrict web developers into using a particular habit? There is no fathomable functionally practical r
