Re: ISSUE-149 (missing key values): The multiply and other key values are missing [DOM3 Events]

Hi Travis,

Thanks for reporting this issue. The missing key values have been added to the spec. Let us know if you have further comments or concerns.

During implementation of the 'key' and 'char' properties in IE9, we discovered that there appears to be a missing key from the Key Values Set (6.2.7).

For the number-pad keys, there are already keys provided in the list in the current draft of the spec for:

*         "Add"

*         "Subtract"

*         "Divide"

*         "Decimal"

*         "Subtract"

However, "Multiply" is missing.

I do not know if this is a deliberate omission because of the text in the final paragraph of section 6.2, which says: "due to the lack of a multiplication key on many keyboard".

The Windows OS is providing this named key ["Multiply"] to IE, and therefore to other browsers as well. I propose that "Multiply" be added to the list of Key Value Set.
