Hah! This bug came about when I tried to make sure we matched the part of DOM
Level 1 where it says 'The return value of an attribute that has a data type
that is a value list is always capitalized, independent of the case of the value
in the source document. For example, if the value of the align attribute on a P
element is "left" then it is returned as "Left".'
(see http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-DOM-Level-1/level-one-html.html#ID-642250288).

Obviously, this is an exception, as is any place where the case of the value is
significant. I'll fix this.
