We need to add information about ByteString binding
This is basically a type that treats JS strings as sequences of numbers in the range 0-255.  It's only used for legacy things like XMLHttpRequest.
I'm wontfixing this.

We don't document the standard bindings ( http://heycam.github.io/webidl/#idl-ByteString ), though we of course use them to translate the WebIDL of a feature in docs :-)

Feel free to open specific bugs error where a ByteString is in the WebIDL and not documented adequately in MDN.

Note that this was specifically about the Mozilla-internal documentation of our WebIDL bindings support: <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/WebIDL_bindings>. If this shouldn't be on MDN, what's a better location?

The bug seems to be fixed, though: <https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/WebIDL_bindings#ByteString>.
Resolution: WONTFIX → FIXED
It looks that I missed this part of the document. My bad. This was a valid bug and it is indeed fixed.
