--- Comment #4 from Gary Kacmarcik <garykac@google.com> ---
The DOM3 spec has changed considerably since this bug was filed and we're
addressing the problems stated here in the following ways:

The 'char' attribute has been removed since it was only used by the deprecated
keypress event.

We have introduced a 'code' attribute in the UI Events spec to identify
individual keys. This attribute will allow JS authors to check for a specific
key press without needing to worry about the current keyboard locale.
