AlgorithmIdentifier in WebCrypto

I just replied to a comment by middleendian’s blog on a post from last August asking about the AlgorithmIdentifier argument used for the various SubtleCrypto methods. That argument is different for different methods and different algorithms, and it’s not clear when you start what it should be in each case. My reply points the parts of the specification that tell you the answer for that. I also point out the Web Cryptography Resources page I have on my web site that try to point out where to find this kind of detail.
