Hi !

Thank you for this amazing work !

I'm rewriting large parts of my website using this tool, and I may have
found two little bugs :

* get_attribute (in rtjs.js)

when get_attribute "toto" returns a boolean, value_from_string returns the
empty string (this is nasty ..)

(temporary) solution : in rtjs.js, just cast on line 33 with something like

  return value_from_string (v == null ? "" : (v+""));

* input (in js.ml)

it seems that the editable function

    editable = (
      function
          true -> (try  Node.remove_attribute node "disabled" with _  -> ())
        | false -> Node.set_attribute node "disabled" "disabled"
);

works better. (at least it works with buttons, check boxes and so on)

Thank you again !

All best,

William Le Ferrand
