hrefNormalized === false also needs a propHook

Blocked by: Blocking:

jQuery always normalized the content attribute for href/src in IE6/7. Now we have prop and I think, jQuery should also normalize the href/-src-property.

In IE6/7 getting the href attribute should look like this (is already done by jQuery):

anchor.getAttribute('href', 2);

In IE6/7 getting the href property should look like this (should be done by jQuery):

anchor.getAttribute('href', 4);

I made a jsfiddle to document the problem:

Please also have a look at the Microsoft documentation of getAttribute:

@timmywil I haven't actually reviewed this issue or the fiddle

This ticket looks valid to me, seems like we need a propHook here. Given that it's for prehistoric browsers I'd be okay with inferring off the existing hrefNormalized detect rather than adding more code to support.js for it.

The committed solution is invalid. The src and href attributes should return unaltered strings. We use getAttribute( "href", 2) to get the unaltered string. This should not be changed.

See the native behavior in a modern browser for support of what I'm talking about.

Sorry, I have attributes on the mind.
