Hello Friends,


We have implemented contextmenu attribute in blink as per the specification.

There is an issue reported by the web developers.


As per specification [1][2], <menuitem> should not have end tag, but few
websites uses <menuitem>Some markup</menuitem> which resulted in broken

Firefox allows  <menuitem>Some markup</menuitem>. So, we are wondering if
specification can be modified to allow <menuitem>Some markup</menuitem> for
backward compatibility.


Please provide your guidance on the same.

Thanks and regards,
