Add attributes to elements

When I try to add attributes to elements in source mode and hit Apply they get stripped. I even tried to add simple elements like <div id="myid"></div> and it still saves like <div></div>

How can I add attributes to elements?

Can't through the editor. Annoying I know. You could use the html macro and put the html in by hand or you could add them in with JS after the page is rendered.

html macro wouldn't modify the standard editor elements outside the macro. If I add a macro inside an element then it creates all the macro tags that look ugly and require extra parsing to get a hold of. Annoying, I agree.
