Because contents already includes the text. WebCore has two variables
but I don't think it's meant to be used at the same time. When switching
between onlyText and fullContent mode in mac (and gtk+ does the same in
wk1) the other variable is reset to 1. Chromium has the comment I
mentioned before because of the odd effect I explained in another email.
