Defines a source for either media or Mash XML Syntax tags, which is
typically then referenced in the Browser or Player control's
source attribute for display to the end user. Sources also support filtering of their tags based
on arbitrary properties which can be bound to controls, providing a flexible mechanism for navigation and searching of items.
The content tags can either be nested directly within the source tag, or returned
from a separate server request by specifying either the
config is more or less the same as directly nesting the tags, since this attribute
loads as part of the initial configuration. But when
url is specified, the target is expected to be a
CGI script that is capable of paging through sets of tags.

There are two source tags defined in the initial configuration by default, having
id attributes of 'media' and 'mash'. These hold
any media or Mash XML Syntax tags that were encountered outside of source tags during configuration
loading. Sources are also auto generated when the
source attribute of the Browser or Player
control contains a URL.
config: url to a configuration file with a moviemasher tag
count: positive non-zero number
sort: property name shared by items
url: valid URL to a CGI script, including GET parameters
