Description Michael[tm] Smith 2008-12-24 07:22:45 CET
The current HTML5 draft puts the form element only into the "flow content" category, but not the "metadata content" category. Unlike the Web Forms 2.0 draft, the HTML5 draft does not contain any language about allowing the an empy form element inside XHTML head elements.

patch with proposed change

This patch also completely removes the form.elem.empty (because it's only referenced in common.elem.metadata.

Also, this patch incorporates some parts of previous patches I've submitted; as I've noted for other cases where that's happened, I don't know a clean way to separate them out when two patches touch the some chunk of the schema source
