RE: Test Case Approval Request

Just to make sure I understand your feedback...

You think that the test is valid and can help overall browser interoperability looking at past browser implementations.
Though the title of the test needs to be more clear, call out that it's a content attribute test rather than an interface test.

I haven't really looked at the framework in use, but this test is not  
testing the href IDL attribute. It is testing that the href content  
attribute behaves like any other content attribute. I suppose that is  
somewhat valuable given how Opera treated certain content attributes and  
how Internet Explorer treated IDL and content attributes the same, but it  
is certainly not testing the interface.
