Description Masayuki Nakano 2012-07-19 06:30:32 UTC
IE9 uses following key names which are not defined in D3E spec:

"Pause" for VK_PAUSE. This is the key at right of ScrollLock key on full keyboard.

"Play" for VK_PLAY. I'm not sure which keyboard layout has this key. I guess this was in non-PC's keyboard.

I think that Gecko will use same key names for them. Therefore, I'd like D3E spec will add them into the key name table.

I was definitely able to see "Pause" on the key next to the scroll lock. I can't seem to get my MediaPlay, MediaPause key to fire a VK. I'm also not sure where the regular "Play" key would be, but I can certainly add these into the spec;

Fixed in the latest version of the spec: r240
