Description Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2009-04-02 21:51:12 UTC
The following sentence is grammatically bogus:

The task that is queued by the networking task source once the resource has been fetched, must, if the download was successful and the image is available, queue a task to fire a load event on the img element (this happens after complete starts returning true); and otherwise, if the fetching process fails without a response from the remote server, or completes but the image is not a valid or supported image, queue a task to fire an error event on the img element.
