Description Michael[tm] Smith 2008-12-10 08:59:50 UTC
The HTML5 draft currently specifies that the value attribute on <input type=url> "must have a value that is a valid URL". It should instead specify that the value "must be an absolute URL".
Comment 1 Olivier Gendrin 2008-12-10 11:28:47 UTC
We could specify that the UA should convert a user typed relative URL into an absolute one before submitting the form.
