Description Michael[tm] Smith 2009-01-30 03:47:00 UTC
review comment from Hixie: "I don't think we should include <canvas>, since just saying the element exists doesn't really help authors without its API."
Comment 1 Olivier Gendrin 2009-01-30 08:57:42 UTC
So we should perhaps add a pointer to the API, instead of removing an element still used by a least two UA ?
Comment 2 Michael[tm] Smith 2010-02-18 17:42:09 UTC
This bug seems to have been superseded by events that have happened in the year since it was originally filed, so I am closing it. If it should be kept open, please reopen it.
