Description Lachlan Hunt 2009-04-07 11:18:49 UTC
The IDL for the localStorage and sessionStorage properties, and the openDatabase() method on the Window object is currently only defined in HTML5.  These should be included in the WebStorage spec.
Comment 1 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2009-06-01 20:12:53 UTC
I'm waiting for WebIDL to have a way to say "this interface bit is just an extension of that interface bit" without having to have casting or a new interface name or anything. Something like:

   interface A {
      void foo();

   [Supplemental] interface A {
      void bar();

...which would be exactly equivalent to:

   interface A {
      void foo();
      void bar();

(The idea being to not let details of the specification organisation impact the implementation requirements.)

I'm going to use [Supplemental]
