0.9: dojoType versus dojotype browser oddness.

In Firefox, if you accidentally type dojotype= instead of dojoType=, the widgets still work. If you do the same in IE, the widget never instantiates. It appears the query/parser behaves differently with case senstivity between the browsers. It would be good if this didn't matter, as I spent an hour just now tracking this down in a simple app.

Hmm, I agree that it would be good if that were consistent but I'm not sure if it's practical. In any case the only two calls related to dojoType are node.getAttribute() and dojo.query(). Passing to Alex to see what he thinks. I thought that attribute names are supposed to be case insensitive (except for XHTML).

(In [9184]) make sure attribute searches handle all-lower-case variants on IE. Not true case insensitivity, but it's as close as we're gonna get on that browser. Fixes #3438
