That's due to a security restrictions in browsers  you can't pre-populate a form control that uploads a file from the visitor's computer. You might be better off running your test pages on a webserver and testing with a URI.

I just redid 9 chapters to satisfy my computer guru of 30 years standing because he wanted images to display on all the new small-screen gadgetry. Resize by percentage works fine, so why object to it?

Try the HTML working group, or the #html5 channel on the Freenode IRC network.
