Bugzilla – Bug 16879
Allow style and link elements beyond the head
Last modified: 2012-09-14 11:03:16 UTC
This is a suggestion regarding the content model as it pertains to the style and link elements. I suggest that they be permitted wherever phrasing content is expected, similar to the script element, in order to apply to the document (or, in the "scoped" case, to the siblings) retroactively. Most browsers support this already, and I believe it would be very useful for developers of high-performance web applications.
While browsers do not currently recognize a foot element, most already treat unrecognized tags as transparent elements, and they already treat elements after the body tag as children of the body, so metadata content included within a foot tag will already be handled properly.
This bug was cloned to create bug 17849 as part of operation convergence.
