Comment 2 Marek Fukala 2013-06-24 13:28:41 UTC
Isn't the boolean attribute supposed to be used in such form: <video muted></video>? This works well, resp. the validator won't complain.
Comment 3 _ gtzabari 2013-06-24 16:17:25 UTC
You're right.

Can we improve the error message? Instead of:

  Bad value "true" for attribute "muted" on element "video".

perhaps it should say:

  Boolean attribute "muted" may have a value of "muted" or no value at all. See for more information.
