[webkit-dev] Anonymous Rendering Objects in Web Inspector

In my MathML code I often wrap the direct rendering objects for a particular
element in an anonymous rendering object.  When I inspect these elements
I get the particular rendering object for the element but between that
element and the parent's rendering object there are these anonymous
objects used for layout control.

Is there some way to see these objects when you inspect the element?

Is there another tool I can use to inspect the render object tree?
