HTML5 document demonstrating validation problem for HTML-style boolean
attribute specification.

"XML does not support attribute minimization"
(http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/diffs.html#h-4.5).  So it would seem that in
polyglot HTML, the attribute specification for a boolean attribute such as
autofocus cannot consist of the attribute name alone, even though that would be
legal in HTML.  The W3C HTML5 validator seems to agree with this assessment
(see attachment).  But as far as I can tell, the HTML/XHTML Compatibility
Authoring Guide does not mention this issue, nor has this been posted as a bug
to the guide.
