HISTORICAL: DOM3 Events [All Bugs and Issues use Bugzilla:]
Raised by:
Jacob Rossi
Opened on:
Post LC issue raised on the behalf of Masayuki Nakano.

compositionstart event defines:

> Some implemenations may populate the data attribute of the
compositionstart event with the text currently selected in the document
(for editing and replacement); otherwise, the value of the data
attribute must be the empty string.

However, the dead key examples in the document set the first character
of composition string.

Input Method Editor examples are fine.
