WebKit’s API does not offer a way to add a custom HTML element or
attribute. You can read the values of attributes but you can’t make
setting an attribute have an effect. You can create a custom HTML
element, but you can’t make it render any differently than any other
unknown element would (renders the same as a <span>, more or less).
That having been said, if there's some point in time where you can
walk the DOM and find the attributes, then you may be able to get the
effect you want by reading the attribute value and then doing
something based on it.
