The attributes are exposed as properties for compatibility with DOM Level 0.
This usage is deprecated because it can not be generalized to all possible
attribute names, as is required both for XML and potentially for future
versions of HTML. We recommend the use of generic methods on the core
Element interface for setting, getting and removing attributes.
