Description Boris Zbarsky 2014-03-27 14:46:50 UTC
First of all, it's <url>, not <uri>.

Second, and more important, it needs to include the string "url(" somewhere.  And perhaps quotes, or some other form of escaping?
Comment 1 Simon Pieters 2014-03-27 15:52:03 UTC
What the spec says...

The absolute URL URL escaped.
where "URL escaped" is
which in turn uses

So "url(" and quotes and ")" are included AFAICT.

Keeping open for uri->url
Comment 2 Boris Zbarsky 2014-03-27 16:55:54 UTC
Can we make the wording clearer, perhaps?  Like:

  The absolute URL, serialized according to the "serialize a URL" rules.

with "serialize a URL" a link?
