Dear Olaf,

Thank you very much for your feedback!

Can you point to where such an agreement was made? Or can other vendors 
respond with a pledge to bring their implementations into line?

If we can't get other vendors to update their implementations then I'd 
rather make Firefox adopt the more lenient behaviour and provide 
developers with a consistent Web platform than leave things as they are.

I agree empty values have meaning and I'm not proposing ignoring them. 
The proposed approach simply means that authors need to be more explicit 
if they really want the final value to be an empty value.

Thanks,

Brian
