Add src attribute to the template tag, similar to script tag (but for HTML content). Add onload event.
How this functionality (loading an external template into a web app) be achieved currently?
I’ve spelled out this proposal in more detail here. I switched from src to href because it reads more natural to me.
href even stand for?
src obviously stands for “source”. I dislike cryptic tag names like
href, and even
src is cryptic but it is obvious and so commonly used (not just in HTML) that I think that one is fine.
Like, I don’t understand why there isn’t
<style src="path/to/style.css">, and only
<link href="path/to/style.css">. It’s just weird!
I share with you an aversion to all the cryptic syntax. In this case, I was thinking of src or href due to the sheer volume of precedent, which has caused IDE’s to hyperlink those attributes, and also I wonder if search engines already have blanket rules in place that recognize the attribute?
