$("object").attr("data") returns the incorrect value in Chrome

Reported by: FamLam <fam.lam@…> Owned by:

Component: attributes Version: 1.5.1

Blocking: Blocked by:



The return value on Chrome (9.0.597.98 stable, but also all other versions) is the full URL. However, it should return the attribute.

If you follow the explanation of the attributes and how they are resolved, starting with data, followed by codebase then follow that up by reading:


It appears that data attributes of object elements will return a resolved URI
