           Summary: CSS3 Selector Test: *= ~= ^= $= should all accept the
                    empty string, but match nothing
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: All
               URL: http://disruptive-
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: HasReduction
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: CSS
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: webkit at blaut.biz

The issue appeared after decision of CSS WG:

Attribute Selectors

   RESOLVED: Copy attribute selector wording from Selectors into CSS2.1 to
             resolve incompatibility.
   RESOLVED: *= ~= ^= $= all accept the empty string, but match nothing.
             Note that this overrides a previous resolution which stated
             that such attribute selectors are invalid.
   RATIONALE: These selectors are meaningless. This resolution matches
              existing implementations for ~=, which was introduced in
              CSS2.1, and makes *=, ^=, and $=, which were introduced in
              Level 3,
