Which spec?

Firefox and Edge are correctly following the DOM spec for event 
dispatch.  I'm not sure what Chrome/Opera/IE are doing.  I can't tell 
what the HTML spec wants here, so I can't tell whether any of them are 
following the HTML spec.

I too would welcome a response from someone who knows what 
IE/Chrome/Opera are doing.
