Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

The parser in TWikiAttrsDotPm in its "friendly" mode allows an unnamed value in the attribute list. However, this is limited to start with a lowercase character.

I cannot see anywhere in the documentation or in documentation of past tags that the unnamed attribute should start with a lowercase character.

As it would be nice to use this parser to look at the last field in the form definitions (as discussed by CC), I propose that we allow the unnamed attribute to start with uppercase characters also.

A simple fix:

!             elsif ( $string =~ s/^$sep*([a-z]\w*)\b//s ) {
                  my $key = $1;
                  $this->{$key} = 1;
--- 131,137 ----
                    unless defined( $this->{$DEFAULTKEY} );
              # simple name with no value (boolean, or _DEFAULT)
!             elsif ( $string =~ s/^$sep*([a-zA-Z]\w*)\b//s ) {
                  my $key = $1;
                  $this->{$key} = 1;

Done. Since the core doesn't use friendly mode (only plugins use it) this should not be listed in the releasenotes.
