We can simplify the attr code by using getAttributeNode for everything in IE6/7

Right now, the formHook(or the main hook for IE6/7 that uses getAttributeNode) is used in all of the cases that have been found to be absolutely necessary. The problem is, it's a lot of cases. Switching to getAttributeNode for everything in IE6/7 is safe, surprisingly removes the need for jQuery.attrFix completely (except to provide the tabIndex hook to both tabindex and tabIndex), and reduces the number of checks to see if getAttributeNode is needed. In IE6/7, getAttributeNode behaves almost exactly the same way as getAttribute in modern browsers.

Hot damn.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Now using getAttributeNode in all attribute cases in IE6/7, which normalizes attribute behaviors across browsers, is less hacky, and shortens the attribute code. Fixes #9980.

This commit caused the behavior of .attr('foo') to change for markup like <div foo></div>. Here's what I used to bisect my way here:

<span itemscope></span> <script> alert($('span').attr('itemscope') == "" ? 'good' : 'bad'); </script>

This appears to have been fixed in a later release, but I can't see it linked from here.
