            Bug ID: 21708
           Summary: Errors with input element: readonly not accepted for
                    type=text, defaulting of type not allowed
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5

<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>Sample 1</title>
<input type=text readonly>

This causes the error message “Attribute readonly not allowed on element input
at this point.” The explanation that follows lists readonly as allowed when
type is text, as it of course is.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<title></title>
<input readonly>

This causes the error message “Element input is missing one or more of the
following attributes: type.”

There is apparently something odd with readonly for type=text: when the type
attribute is specified explicitly, readonly is not allowed; and when readonly
is specified, defaulting of type is not allowed.

<input type=search readonly> validates OK, and so does <input>.

Validator.nu does not have this bug.
