[webkit-dev] accessing forms using document."form-name". causes crash in XHTML file

Hi All,

  I have pasted the test content below.

If this content is present in a .xhtml file, the webkit crashes. (Verified in

Safari on Win XP with latest nightly, and in Chrome - It crashes there too.)

But, if the same content is served in a .html file, It works fine.

I am afraid, the XHTML content <--> JS bindings have serious issues in webkit.

I have filed this as a bug in https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=22378

Any suggestions/patches to get it working in .xhtml ??

Here's the test content:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


"-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"


<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">


<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="application/xhtml+xml;


<title>Form access </title>





<form name="MyForm" method="POST" action="about:blank">

<input type="hidden" name="name" value=""></input>


<script type="text/javascript">
