2 edits made to the HTML5 spec

:hover and :active interaction with labels

[Bug 12578] New: The note says: "Omitting an element's start tag does not mean the element is not present; it is implied, but it is still there." 1.) Before the word "start tag" should be an "optional", because in many (or all) other cases omitting the start tag results i

[Bug 12580] New: This sentence is a comma splice

[Bug 12581] New: In the section about the time element it is stated that it does not need the datetime attribute set if its textContent is a valid date or time string. So the selector here in the rendering section, time[datetime], might mislead implementors to not apply a

[Bug 12582] New: unable to modify

[Bug 12583] New: (sx, sy), (sx+sw, sy), (sx+sw, sy+sh), (sx, sy+sh) -> should this not be (sx + sw - 1) etc?

[Bug 12584] New: outerHTML should probably merge with adjacent text nodes if applicable. IE seems to do this to some extent, and WebKit just changed to do it: <> This test shows behavior for outerText and outerHTML: <http://so

[Bug 12585] New: DOMTokenList itself should have .value, even if that means that there'd be two ways to change the classList of an element with a single string.

[Bug 12586] New: Suggest using Typed Array for ImageData pixels. Add a new 'buffer' attribute that references ArrayBuffer of the pixel data. Convert 'data' (CanvasPixelArray) to Uint8Array view of 'buffer'.

[Bug 12587] New: AT shouldn't see img@alt="" and img@role=presentation as 100% synonyms

[Bug 12588] New: thehat your comment is descriptive enough that the editor can understand it.

[Bug 12590] New: @role=presentation for IMG should also require that @title is empty

[Bug 12591] New: restrict img from taking @role=presentation whenever img provides link text

[Bug 12592] New: Spec should prohibit some MIME types (e.g. "text/xml") implemented by user agents as script languages, even if it could contain scripts, to not break documents which use them as data rather than scripts

[Bug 12594] New: The [MFREL] document does not currently contain the kind of information that is described to have. For example, there is no "status" information. Thus, it is impossible to say which keywords are allowed, though we might guess that keywords in the section

[Bug 12595] New: Fire suspend event when/if entire resource is loaded

[Bug 12596] New: Explicitly state that preload=none fires a suspend event

[Bug 12597] New: broken links

[Bug 12598] New: <video> Odd distinction between two kinds of network errors

[Bug 12600] New: In the ExclusiveTrackList object the unsigned long type is used for the selected indices. However, it's unclear if -1 is reserved to the no selection case (see non-normative box below). In this case, the type of the indices should be a signed long.

[Bug 12602] New: "<select><option>\n<option></select>" isn't a placeholder label option because its value is "\n", which is silly. We should strip spaces from the start and end in the definition of the option's label when it comes from textContent.

[Bug 12603] New: rendering section for <select>, the sentence that describes the rendering of <option>: the concept-option-label is in <code> instead of <span>.

[Bug 12604] New: Provide accessibility API details for Change Proposal for ISSUE-131

[Bug 12605] New: section, step 4: first sub-step deals with U+0020 space, so U+0020 and 0x20 can be removed from the subsequent points

[Bug 12624] New: Hello from Russia! I'm minihacker :)

[Bug 12625] New: Bug in WebIDL of HTMLElement

[Bug 12627] New: Why is this section called "real numbers" when everything inside the section uses the term "floating-point" instead? You should use "floating-point numbers" as the section name instead. (This use of "real number" is an affront to mathematics anyway. Wh

[Bug 12629] New: "the current value of the selectionEnd attribute as the first argument" -- You mean "second", not "first".

[Bug 12630] New: The formNoValidate property of HTMLButtonElement should be boolean instead of DOMString

[Bug 12638] New: make SVG files be embbeded by the IMG tag or maybe a SVG embed tag, thanks!

[Bug 12639] New: collection[index] = new Option() as setter is supported by all modern UA(ff, opera, webkit, IE). Holes are allowed as in JS array i.e. {select.options.length = 0; select.options[10] = new Option(); select.options.length // 11}

[Bug 12640] New: [diffs] list u element in "Changed elements" section

[Bug 12641] New: make dfn for "space characters" visible in the non-implementor view

[Bug 12642] New: The description of article element should say ”page or article”, not ”page or section”, as clause 4.4.10 clearly specifies that the scope is the nearest enclosing body or article element.

[Bug 12648] New: Use of comments and space characters before DOCTYPE throws many versions of IE to Quirks Mode, so either they should be disallowed, or the note at the start of 11.1.1 should be modified. The note now claims that the inclusion of DOCTYPE "ensures that the

[Bug 12650] New: the last <p> tag in the example should be a closing </p> tag.

[Bug 12651] New: More things should set salvageable. Like XHR. See <> for relevant code in safari (thanks ap)

[Bug 12652] New: what does this do?

[Bug 12655] New: Suggestion: For <wbr/> tag, include an example of use of <wbr/> in "text-wrap: none" ("white-space: nowrap" or "white-space: pre") content

[Bug 12656] New: If a dt and dd are wrapped in a div, are they excluded from being a group in that dl? This statement is not clear with regards to this: "If a dl element contains non-whitespace text nodes, or elements other than dt and dd, then those elements or text node

[Bug 12658] New: "the x element" is normally given with x within <code>. Here it isn't.

[Bug 12659] New: The list is missing "input, select { display: inline-block; }", which is present in the CSS 2.1 stylesheet and supported by browsers.

[Bug 12662] New: Add a section with suggestions for the 'chapters' text track kind, demonstrating how nested time ranges can be used for hierarchical chapters.

[Bug 12663] New: [editiorial] aria-readonly is a property, not a state

[Bug 12664] New: Warn about the perils of registering event handlers after <video>

[Bug 12665] New: This definition seems slightly wrong; if you have a tree like (assume XML-style parsing) <select><optgroup><optgroup><option>foo[...] UAs give options.length = 1, not 0. Basically the algorithm is that you walk the subtree rooted at the select, include a

[Bug 12667] New: Setting doc.title in an SVG document doesn't (necessarily) throw

[Bug 12668] New: UA's *should* send HTTPS URLs to (secure) third-party sites registered as content handlers, as UAs *do* send Referer HTTP headers from secure sites to third-party sites, given that the third-party site is also secure.

[Bug 12676] New: DATA_CLONE_ERR code mismatch

[Bug 12677] New: Should drop "The link types that contain no U+003A COLON characters (:), including all those defined in this specification, are ASCII case-insensitive values, and must be compared as such." since it's meaningless (nothing specifies anything about colons h

[Bug 12678] New: <link>: to avoid mistakes, we should make rel and itemprop mutually exclusive, and disallow rel on <link> outside <head> altogether.

[Bug 12679] New: In you argued that most HTML attributes don't use hyphen, so for consistency cross-origin should be crossorigin

[Bug 12680] New: Click on the "cross-origin" definition. The popup has status annotation boxes which overlaps the links.

[Bug 12681] New: <video> should not have force same-origin flag set by default. No browser does that and content is relying on cross-origin video to just work by now.

[Bug 12682] New: Value sanitization algorithm for e-mail state should strip leading and trailing white spaces

[Bug 12710] New: @accesskey: Authoring conformance - reliance on @tabindex et cetera

[Bug 12711] New: There is no statement about the SCOPE attribute on TD elements. As it is allowed in HTML 4.01 Strict, I would expect some statement about it, like "replace TD by TH for header cells". (Apparently the idea is that every cell be classified as data cell or a

[Bug 12729] New: "When the element is created, if the attribute is absent, the details should be hidden; if the attribute is absent, the details should be shown." Second "absent" should be "present", I think.
