Brief Overview Notes - Attributes 1. Its important to be able to GET and SET attributes as you build you JS application 2. The $.fn.attr method acts as both a getter and a setter. As with the $.fn.css method, $.fn.attr as a setter can accept either a key and a value, or an object containing one or more key/value pairs. NB. You can use a minification tool later to strip out unnecessary whitespace for production.
