Description Henri Sivonen 2010-09-03 06:43:05 UTC
Please add a note saying that if a script that blocks the parser gets moved before it unblocks, it will continue blocking the parser and unblock whenever it would otherwise unblock (when a style sheet blocking scripts no longer blocks, when the script has been evaluated or when an external script load has failed due to a network error).

Where? I can't really work out where to put this. There's not really anything in the spec that suggests anything different is there?

Check-in comment: clarify who owns what when scripts are moved between documents
Comment 3 Henri Sivonen 2010-09-29 08:45:57 UTC
You are right that there isn't a convenient place for the note. I suggest putting the note next to the definition:
