           Summary: Spurios error message "area tag needs href attribute"
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5
        AssignedTo: mike@w3.org
        ReportedBy: bronger@physik.rwth-aachen.de
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org

If checking HTML5 with <area> tag without href attribute, the validator
complains "XHTML element area is missing required attribute href".  However,
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#attr-hyperlink-href states
that the attribute is optional.
