HTML5 required property to append or replace "aria-required"
|Reported by:||MMN-o||Owned by:|
I found it slightly annoying that my browser kept sending the comment forms on my blog even if I forgot to fill out name and email.
Fortunately HTML5 has a property for this, 'required', which can force form fields to be filled before a user's browser submits the form.
Patch is attached that adds HTML5 required statement to required fields in default comment_form function.
It may be an idea also to entirely remove the "aria-required" property, as it is not really standardised.
For what I know, Wordpress tends to have <!DOCTYPE html>, which means the property doesn't need to be " required='required'", but rather just " required".
Both HTML5 and XHTML versions are attached.
