Regarding http://html5.org/tools/web-apps-tracker?from=2800&to=2801, my

1. Change the literals "true"/"false" to "on"/"off", leaving the DOM values
2. Check the spelling of the passage ("asits"!) :0)
3. Say that the default behavior for BODY is "on" and the default behavior
for INPUT[type=text] is "off".
4. (I understand that it is implicit that this "SHOULD indicate" does not
make tiny clients that do not have the resources non-compliant?)

Stretching it a bit, a user's language always matches the site's, otherwise
the user would not be able to submit to the site anything that makes sense,
except when the site is a gateway for submissions to an uninvolved third
party, in which case said submissions should be tagged with the language of
submission anyway (IMHO).

Best regards,
