           Summary: make clear whether value attribute on
                    input[type='button'] element can be empty
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch

r5550 made the value attribute required for the "button state" of the input
element (input[type='button'])

http://html5.org/tools/web-apps-tracker?from=5549&to=5550
http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/number-state.html#button-state

...but to me at least it does not seem clear from the spec whether the value
attribute for this case is allowed to be empty.

In other words, if a document contains an instance of <input type=button
value=""> then should a conformance checker emit an error message for that
instance, or not?
