What there contradicts what I said? I'm aware of innerHTML hacks that make it possible to work around but those are not valid attribute names. I'm not even against the syntax; i like it, but that doesn't change the fact that it is invalid html.



Parent quotes the W3 Spec to prove that it's legal, and your response is "it's illegal because $BROWSER say's so"?

I trust the spec more than an implementation.


The parent didn't quote the spec, they quoted a GitHub issue with 71 participants. If you want to post a link to the spec text please do.

If true I'm not sure it matters if every browser throws an exception.


User pfooti's comment referenced the specification[1]. You said that a browsers' implementation of the DOM API proves that it is illegal. I then linked to an issue with a detailed discussion of how the DOM API isn't consistent with itself, much less the HTML specification.
