In XHTML 2 we treat @src as meaning "embed the associated resource here 
in the document if it is available and the client can process it" much 
as with the object element.  @href, on the other hand, means "link to 
the resource at the other end of this URI if the user requests it".  
More or less, anyway.  IMHO those attributes mean something very similar 
in XHTML 1 / HTML 4; their scope is just limited to a smaller collection 
of elements.
