Re: Mapping between DOM3 keylist and CEA2014/OIPF virtual keycodes

I would think the back key should be handled by user agent and not passed to application, correct? Does W3C specify key mappings for application and user agent level?

As mentioned below, the spec I'm looking at is CEA2014, and it includes both VK_BACK and VK_BACK_SPACE.
For the record the list I'm using comes from the OIPF Web Standards TV profile shared on this list a while ago

Of course one could argue that VK_BACK and VK_BACK_SPACE are the same and the first should be dropped. Is that what you were suggesting?

Note though that they are usually intended as different. See also this list that Glenn put together a while ago
