Perhaps it should either be zero or the closest value to zero within

I would presume the latter, since it's better to have a patternless
input than an accidentally disabled one. Besides, the server is still
supposed to validate the values.

of getting an attribute. One if using GetAttribute, and the other is via
a property of a specific element object. GetAttribute would give you the
value set in the markup, whereas the object property would have the
value used by the UA.

same for URIs.

and radio buttons.
