Add support for the <track> element to the HTML parser
The HTML5 spec now requires <track> to parse like <param> and <source>. Mike(tm) Smith has patched the Java version of the parser. Need to land the translation into m-c.
Mike, are you ok with being the hg author of record for the code that is autogenerated from your Java patch?

Don't forget "dev-doc-needed" keyword for those bugs, otherwise documentation is a game of hazard.
Adding link to specification.
Documentation updated to indicate Firefox compatibility: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/HTML/Element/track Also listed on Firefox 6 for developers.
If I understand well this bug, the documentation is not accurate. Support for <track> wasn't the goal of this bug, merely its support by the HTML parser. In other terms, the compatibility matrix in https://developer.mozilla.org/en/HTML/Element/track shouldn't have been updated (I've corrected it). And in Firefox 6 for developers, I've updated the sentence to be more accurate. (I got feedback from a web developer trying to use this feature using Aurora and the MDN information — yes! There are some people using these! — and surprised that it failed)

Summary: Add support for the <track> element → Add support for the <track> element to the HTML parser
