bzbarsky has just created a new issue for 

== The W3C HTML spec is broken, and probably shouldn't be referenced 
I was pretty confused by 
 step 7.2, as referenced from 
step 3, because it's completely nonsensical: it causes the algorithm 
to _always_ throw.

Then I realized that this is the W3C version of the HTML spec, which 
has all sorts of known issues like this.  For comparison, 
 step 7.2 is correct...

Please reference the things that actually have the behavior you want.
  I guess if you have to reference W3C HTML, that makes it your 
problem to check that it has the behavior you want and push on its 
editors to fix it if it does not.
