OK, now I'm seeing the behavior you expected. However, there's a  
strange side-effect to this. The elements existing in the document  
upon load are instantiated as DOMHTML* subclasses while the elements  
I create with the DOMDocument createElement are now DOMElement  
classes. So now I have meta elements of class DOMelement and meta  
elements of class DOMHTMLMetaElement. I can work with this, but its a  
bit peculiar.
