     2
     3Wenson Hsieh, Apple
     4
     5- input events fired when DOM mutates (editable elements)
     6        - events of type input
     7        - non-cancellable
     8
     9- new spec creates subclasses of input events that are cancellable
     10
     11- why?
     12        - pages may want to allow only a subset of rich editing commands
     13        - handle certain editing operations in a custom way
     14        - track edited text using a custom JS-based data model
     15                - what is shown/represented on the page
     16
     17- attribute DOMString inputType
     18        - insertRelacementText
     19        - insertFromPaste
     20        - insertCompositionText
     21        - deleteWordBackward
     22        - formatBold
     23- attribute DOMString? data
     24        - some data attached to the event being fired
     25        - e.g. as the user types, the data field of the event is each newly inserted character
     26- attribute DataTransfer? dataTransfer
     27        - only for rich editing elements
     28        - way to get HTML representation of contents being transferred
     29- sequence<StaticRange> getTargetRanges()
     30        - range of text being modified by current input command
     31
     32- [https://whsieh.github.io/examples/markdown Demo] of simple markdown editor
     33        - content is bold-able from context menu
     34        - maybe instead we edit the content to represent the intent of the action (wrap the text in “**” for markdown bold)
     35        - take data that is copied/pasted and override what is shown
     36
     37- function handler for BeforeInput
     38        - check the different values for `event.inputType` and act accordingly
     39        - one handler for all types
