The command: dojo.attr(node, 'required') has different results on browsers, FF6 always returns a boolean while IE8/9 returns a string. See the table below for the output.

<input required="true"> 'true' true
<input required="false"> 'false' true
<input> null false

Note that the behavior is correct for other attributes, it only occurs if its the 'required' attribute

We may need to introduce a pre/post-processors for dojo.attr() to handle this and similar tickets. My point is it will be a bigger change under the hood than expected.
