I agree - this was not really a good example...

The point is - I caught myself doing (or rather wishing to do) the kind of thing, I showed in my first
example for comboboxes that contained some language codes (by adding some
flag images in front of the list items). At first I thought it was a bug
in Mozilla that prohibited that kind of use of attr() function, but upon
further investigation, I found out that this was a "bug" on the CSS spec
side of things.
