1. Go to

Expected ; The Korean KBD layout should show up. And, clicking on shift changes the layout dynamically.

Actual : The background is painted blue-gray, but nothing happens.

Firefox has the same problem. Its error console does not report anything that seems relevant. The same is true of Safari-Win.

Opera 9.21 on Windows  works fine except that the KBD layout is not centered.

Verified with latest webkit nightly build: r28278

We agree with html5lib here.

We have similar bugs about failing to close <script> or <head> rendering an entire page blank.  Given that we agree with HTML5, Hixie should likely be CC'd I don't believe we intend to diverge our HTML tokenizer from HTML5.
Comment 5 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2008-04-22 16:26:04 PDT
<head> not closing shouldn't be a problem. Can you cc me on those bugs?

<script> not closing is required for security.

I'm not really sure how to fix this one in HTML5 though. Should we try to fix it?

The broken web site no longer exists.  Our parsing matches the spec.  Hixie notes above that it's unclear how the spec could change to support this case.  This bug is not actionable.
