I've tried walking through the DOM in a recursive way. Displaying a node with alert(node) normally produces output like "object text" or "objekt HTMLLiElement" or something. Only if you display an anchor node this way, you get the href attributes value instead. I find that's kind of strange and disturbing. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load the testcase I'll attach with JS enabled and see. Actual Results: The alert displays "[object text]" for the text nodes, "http://www.mozilla.org" for the anchor element and "[object HTMLDivElement]" for the div element. Expected Results: It should have displayed "[objekt HTMLAnchorElement]" for the anchor element.
Created attachment 154471 [details] a very minimal testcase demonstrating the problem the testcase promised
Calling alert() on something just calls its toString() method and then alerts the string. Now anchor elements happen to have a nontrivial toString() method for DOM0 compat. So everything is working as expected.
