ISSUE-191: Implying types for attr()

Implying types for attr()

CSS3 Values and Units
Raised by:
Håkon Wium Lie
Opened on:
Ideally, it shouldn't be necessary to specify the type if it is obvious. For example, this should be valid: ‘background-image: attr(href);’. This could be described as: "If the property only accepts one type of value (aside from ‘inherit’ and ‘initial’), that type is implied".
