http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/urls.html#reflect
when talking about attributes of type HTMLElement has this text:

  Let candidate be the element that the document.getElementById() method would
  find when called on the content attribute's document if it was passed as its
  argument the current value of the corresponding content attribute.

Ignoring for the moment the "if it was" which should be "if it were", I have no
idea what "content attribute's document" means.  Attributes don't have
documents.  Is the ownerDocument of the element involved meant?  Or the
document the element is in, if any?  Or something else?
