For example:
<input type='email' pattern='[^@]*@company.com' multiple>

Currently, this value is valid:
but not this one:
"foo@company.com, bar@company.com"

Both should be valid.

This bug reflects a recent change in WHAT WG HTML5 specs (r5738).
I'm not really sure about using nsDependentSubstring instead of a string type that owns its buffer. Let me know if you think I should do more research on it. Thank you.

Apply pattern to every token for input type="email" multiple

Review of attachment 8388197 [details] [diff] [review]:

What about having a ::GetValues() method that will return the "values" as described in the specification. Then, we could simply run the pattern check on all the different item. The advantage of that approach is that we could then expand it to all types of <input> that have @multiple applying to them.

Sounds good. Can I have this bug assigned while I'm working on it? Thanks

Review of attachment 8391919 [details] [diff] [review]:

I'm sorry, I just noticed that doing this creates inconsistencies between multiple and non-multiple email checking, in the non-multiple case spaces are not trimmed before checking so " agi@mail.com" is not valid, while in the multiple case it is. Also it allows non-multiple input elements to have more than one email specified (I'll fix this soon). Maybe a partial fix for 805039 would help this?

Overholt: patch has been sitting here awhile, should probably have someone look at it.
