Description Henri Sivonen 2009-03-27 11:54:39 UTC
The node cloning step in the AAA still reads from the live DOM. (It reads script-mutated attributes.) This is bad for off-the-main-thread parsing. 

Please change the spec so that:
 1) The items on the list of open formatting elements remember the start tag token associated with the items.
 2) Instead of shallow-cloning an existing node, create a new element for the token on the list.
Comment 1 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2009-04-01 00:41:02 UTC
Done. This also affected reconstructing the formatting elements.
