No, you can't have multiple attributes of the same name - the HTML
parser deals with that and only takes one of them.

Yeah, gaps don't look nice, but they're handled fine - the algorithm
collects all of the srcN attrs and sorts them by index (step 4), so
gaps are just skipped over.

I'm already using a semicolon and a comma; I think another level of
separator would get really confusing.  ^_^
