ISSUE-36: Client side database storage SQL statement support

client-side-storage-sql

Client side database storage SQL statement support

State:
CLOSED
Product:
HTML 5 spec
Raised by:
Shawn Medero
Opened on:
2008-02-19
Description:
__This issue may depend on the resolution of ISSUE-16 (Is the offline application spec within scope?)__

Should the client-side database storage section of the specification clearly outline what SQL statements _must_ be supported by implementors?

If so what are the MUSTs vs. SHOULDs?

## Proposals
