Description Takeshi Yoshino 2012-08-20 12:55:41 UTC
> CLOSING (numeric value 2)
> The connection is going through the closing handshake.

The readyState can enter CLOSING also when close() is called before establishment. In that case, it's not going through closing handshake.

> When the user agent validates the server's response during the "establish a WebSocket connection" algorithm, if the status code received from the server is not 101 (e.g. it is a redirect), the user agent must fail the websocket connection.

websocket -> WebSocket

> If the user agent was required to fail the websocket connection or the WebSocket connection is closed with prejudice, fire a simple event named error at the WebSocket object. [WSP]

missing anchor on reason to its description

Hixie - would you please provide input on the first issue in this bug i.e. the one about CLOSING?

Takeshi - I don't understand what you mean by "missing anchor on reason to its description" (the last issue in this bug) so please elaborate.
Comment 2 Arthur Barstow 2012-08-27 12:15:48 UTC
Takeshi - nevermind (I now understand your comment about missing a link to the description of the "reason" attribute).
