/**
 * nsHtml5AtomTable provides non-locking lookup and creation of atoms for 
 * nsHtml5Parser or nsHtml5StreamParser.
 *
 * The hashtable holds dynamically allocated atoms that are private to an 
 * instance of nsHtml5Parser or nsHtml5StreamParser. (Static atoms are used on 
 * interned nsHtml5ElementNames and interned nsHtml5AttributeNames. Also, when 
 * the doctype name is 'html', that identifier needs to be represented as a 
 * static atom.)
 *
 * Each instance of nsHtml5Parser has a single instance of nsHtml5AtomTable, 
 * and each instance of nsHtml5StreamParser has a single instance of 
 * nsHtml5AtomTable. Dynamic atoms obtained from an nsHtml5AtomTable are valid 
 * for == comparison with each other or with atoms declared in nsHtml5Atoms 
 * within the nsHtml5Tokenizer and the nsHtml5TreeBuilder instances owned by 
 * the same nsHtml5Parser/nsHtml5StreamParser instance that owns the 
 * nsHtml5AtomTable instance.
 * 
 * Dynamic atoms (atoms whose IsStaticAtom() returns false) obtained from 
 * nsHtml5AtomTable must be re-obtained from another atom table when there's a 
 * need to migrate atoms from an nsHtml5Parser to its nsHtml5StreamParser 
 * (re-obtain from the other nsHtml5AtomTable), from an nsHtml5Parser to its 
 * owner nsHtml5Parser (re-obtain from the other nsHtml5AtomTable) or from the 
 * parser to the DOM (re-obtain from the application-wide atom table). To 
 * re-obtain an atom from another atom table, obtain a string from the atom 
 * using ToString(nsAString&) and look up an atom in the other table using that 
 * string.
 *
 * An instance of nsHtml5AtomTable that belongs to an nsHtml5Parser is only 
 * accessed from the main thread. An instance of nsHtml5AtomTable that belongs 
 * to an nsHtml5StreamParser is accessed both from the main thread and from the 
 * thread that executes the runnables of the nsHtml5StreamParser instance. 
 * However, the threads never access the nsHtml5AtomTable instance concurrently 
 * in the nsHtml5StreamParser case.
 *
 * Methods on the atoms obtained from nsHtml5AtomTable may be called on any 
 * thread, although they only need to be called on the main thread or on the 
 * thread working for the nsHtml5StreamParser when nsHtml5AtomTable belongs to 
 * an nsHtml5StreamParser.
 *
 * Dynamic atoms obtained from nsHtml5AtomTable are deleted when the 
 * nsHtml5AtomTable itself is destructed, which happens when the owner 
 * nsHtml5Parser or nsHtml5StreamParser is destructed.
