I am working with the assumption that any DOM manipulation that can be 
done using javascript can be done by using equivalent functions from 
DOM* objects. So far this assumption has been true. Most of the times 
all I have to do open gir or header files and look for corresponding 

I am now interested in webkit_dom_html_document_get_active_element 
function available on DOMHTMLDocument. I tried with pygtk  code, but 
looks like I can not get DOMHTMLDocument back when I try to call 
get_dom_document method either on frame or on view. I get an error 
method not available when I try to call corresponding method in python 
which GIR says should be available. Have not tried this with C code.

Question I have is do I get DOMHTMLDocument back when the current page 
displayed is HTML? How do I know I have DOMHTMLDocument? If I know for 
certain that it's DOMHTMLDocument, I can just cast it.

Any other alternative/suggestions also welcome.
