> in watir/ie.rb, all_tag_attributes, the used regex to filter attribute names is not restrictive enough - it allows every printable char in attribute names (which can lead to attributes like 'false;?="false;?"' for example).
> A better regex that will not exhibit that problem would be /^[\w:][\w0-9.\-:]*$/
