Description Eric Seidel 2010-07-04 20:10:42 UTC
"in body" insertion mode, "any other end tag", step 2.2 seems wrong:

2. If node has the same tag name as the token, then:

2.1 Generate implied end tags.

2.2 If the tag name of the end tag token does not match the tag name of the current node, this is a parse error.

2.3 Pop all the nodes from the current node up to node, including node, then stop these steps.

2.2. should instruct implementors to abort the steps after the parse error, since reaching 2.3, having already popped the node in 2.1 will fail?
Comment 1 Simon Pieters 2010-07-05 14:02:18 UTC
The steps shouldn't be aborted, but 2.1 should say to generate implied end tags except the tag name of the current token. I think jgraham has already filed a bug for that.

Checked in as WHATWG revision r5162.
Check-in comment: Change the 'end tag' processing to not imply its own end tag, since that makes no sense. (Only affects parsing of rp and rt elements.) Also clean up the way categories are references to avoid too many negatives, and put option and optgroup in the 'special' category (should have no effect in practice). And make a loop use a label rather than jumping to a numbered step.
