/*
 * A wrapper to contain either an nsAttrValue or an nsAString. This is useful
 * because constructing an nsAttrValue from an nsAString can be expensive when
 * the buffer of the string is not shared.
 *
 * This treats nsAttrValueOrString(nullptr) as the empty string,
 * to help with contexts where a null pointer denotes an empty value.
 *
 * Since a raw pointer to the passed-in string is kept, this class should only
 * be used on the stack.
