Description Tobie Langel 2014-02-27 21:27:19 UTC
The spec hosted on /TR doesn't have a <head> or <body> element. This makes parsing it (e.g. for testing purposes) a lot more complicated than other specs.
Comment 1 Ms2ger 2014-02-27 21:33:09 UTC
It's missing tags, not elements. Please use a HTML parser to parse HTML, then you won't have silly issues like this.
Comment 2 Tobie Langel 2014-02-28 00:12:09 UTC
You're right that it's not missing the <BODY> element, but it is missing the <HEAD> element in the DOM generated by jsdom (v. 0.10.1). The <BODY> element also curiously includes the <HTML> element.

See the DOM generated by jsdom here:

I'm not sure if that is a bug with the parser, the parsing algorithm, ot the Webstorage spec.
Comment 3 Ms2ger 2014-02-28 07:41:45 UTC
It's a bug in the parser only.
