That is actually the WHATWG spec from 2005. It's absurdly out of date. :-)

This evolved into what is now this:

Please, as an implementor, never look at a document that is more than a 
week or so old. If the date isn't really recent, then you're almost 
certainly looking at something obsolete, and implementing it will just 
mean you're implementing known-buggy text. (Or, you're looking at 
something that's fallen into decay with no active maintenance, which is 
almost as bad.)
