From: Eric Bednarz on

Using the DOM module at


and given

<input readonly>

as the first element of type INPUT in a HTML context,


returns an empty string in Firefox 3.5, Opera 10.10, Safari 4, Google
Chrome 4 beta (all on OS X) and Internet Explorer < 8.

Amazingly IE 8 seems to be the only browser to get the getAttribute
method of the Element interface right (in this respect), and that
even without using any wrapper methods. Bummer :-)
