Hi All,

I wish to add a new attribute to an HTML tag. Can somebody give
pointers to a standard process of doing so. I have tried making
changes to the html parser but so far it has not yielded any success.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
mohan

If you modify the Gecko rendering engine to handle a new attribute, what
do you plan to do for IE, Opera, Chrome, and other browsers? Or are you
planning to make Web pages that are viewable only via a Gecko-based
browser?

If this is truly a useful change, I suggest you contact the HTML Working
Group at W3C, at <http://www.w3.org/html/wg/>.
