AutoComplete Attribute Not Disabled for Password in Form Based Authentication

I have a few questions about the test for AutoCompletel.  I understand that the tool is looking for the presence of 'autocomplete="off"' on, e.g., password input fields.  My questions are:

  1. would the tool still complain if the autocomplete="off" were specified in CSS?
  2. would the tool still complain if the autocomplete="off" were in the FORM tag instead of the INPUT tag?
  3. why does the tool complain about autocomplete when examining a pre HTML5 page (when the autocomplete attribute was not added until HTML5)?

I am patiently awaiting replies.
