Description Everett Zufelt 2011-09-06 13:43:30 UTC Definitions


"An element can be constrained in various ways. The following is the list of validity states that a form control can be in, making the control invalid for
the purposes of constraint validation. (The definitions below are non-normative; other parts of this specification define more precisely when each state
applies or does not.)"

* Please add a link to the normative section for validity constraints.

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The requirements are dotted all over the spec, in the various places that are relevant. Search for "Constraint validation:" to see many of these places. So I don't think it's possible to provide one link. That's actually why I included this non-normative section, to summarise it.
