getAttribute() doesn't get existing attributes on wrong tag

The getAttribute() method allows you to read out any attribute from any tag. Except in Opera 7.54 and lower, which refuses existing attributes on the wrong tag.

Though this is a non-issue now-a-days, I just discovered Opera 6.06 actually works properly (attribute value is returned).
