keyboard events

shepazu: I updated the spec based on hallword's (spelling?) notes

<jrossi> http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/DOM-Level-3-Events/html/DOM3-Events.html#keys-keyCode-charCode-which

shepazu: added supplementary idl for charCode/keyCode/which
... there lots of legacy stuff we don't need to specify, but legacy keyboard events are mainstream
... not making it normative though
... it is not appendix because I wanted to keep it there near other keyboard stuff
... will change it to appendix

smaug: I'd suggest not using KeyboardEvent, but LegacyKeyboardEvent

jrossi: Why not switch to WebIDL?

shepazu: WebIDL is not stable enough yet

jrossi: about WDC vs D3E
... I have a testpage about that
... D3E doesn't need to restrict what the event type string can be

smaug: I agree
... the other difference is the exceptions from dispatchEvent

jrossi: I like keeping the two different exceptions

<jrossi> issue-178?

<trackbot> ISSUE-178 -- Implementations and DOM Core allow empty string and null event types -- raised

<trackbot> http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/track/issues/178

resolution: accept the change request issue-178

<jrossi> issue-179?

<trackbot> ISSUE-179 -- DOM Core uses INVALID_STATE_ERR (DOMException) where D3E uses DISPATCH_REQUEST_ERR (EventException) -- raised

<trackbot> http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/track/issues/179

resolution: it is useful to have separate exceptions for for different cases


<shepazu> trackbot, end telcon
