Hello Everybody,

Can someone explain to me the DOM building process with some pointers
to the portions in the source code, please.

I understand how the Tokenizer interacts with the Parser and creates
HTML elements corresponding to tags. However, I am not able to pin
down the portions in the source code that add attributes to the HTML
element. I set breakpoint to the Element::setAttribute functions, but
I dont see the parser calling it.

I appreciate your help.
