Description Glenn Adams 2010-11-22 17:35:02 UTC
Under "The document base URL of a Document object is the absolute URL obtained by running these substeps" appears substep 5 which reads:

"5. Otherwise, let url be the value of the href attribute of the first such element."

I believe this should read "Otherwise, let fallback base url be..."

since this is a alternative continuation of step 4 which is setting the fallback base url.

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: No, 'url' is intended in this context. It's used to resolve relative <base> URLs to obtain the actual document base URL (which itself is always absolute).
