Here are some ideas for how to include custom data in HTML documents.

Candidates

<span custom:my-thing="50" custom:my-other-thing="4,5,1,2">bla bla</span>
<span custom-my-thing="50" custom-my-other-thing="4,5,1,2">bla bla</span>
<span data-thing="50" data-my-doohickey="4,5,1,2">bla bla</span>

if (span.data.thing > 10) { ... }
span.data.doohickey = '1,2,3,4';

Rejected

<span><param name=my-thing value="50"><param name=my-other-thing value="4,5,1,2">bla bla</span>
