hober? do you know why img.src must reflect the content attribute of the same in HTML5?
16:37:59 [plh]
because, from what I know, this is not the case
16:38:42 [plh]
it returns the absolute url insteadf

plh: how is that any different than <a href>?
16:59:58 [hober]
plh: "If a reflecting IDL attribute is a DOMString attribute whose content attribute is defined to contain a URL, then on getting, the IDL attribute must resolve the value of the content attribute relative to the element and return the resulting absolute URL if that was successful, or the empty string otherwise; and on setting, must set the content attribute to the specified literal value. If the content attribute is absent, the IDL
16:59:58 [hober]
attribute must return the default value, if the content attribute has one, or else the empty string."
