[webkit-dev] How does WebCore Loader work?

Going into details on how the loader works is quite a tall topic that  
is more about wiki/tutorial webpages than a post to this mailing list.

But to answer your specific question, after FrameLoader calls  
checkNavigationPolicy() on the FrameLoadClient, the FrameLoadClient is  
expected to call back to FrameLoader::checkNavigationPolicy() to  
continue the loading procedure.

Hopefully that will help you continue your hunt.
