           Summary: DOM changing with duplicated id's
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 412+
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://www.darkrock.co.uk/bug.html
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML DOM
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org
        ReportedBy: chris at darkrock.co.uk

The bug shows the problem:

Create a new div with the same id as an existing div. Place the new div within the DOM tree, then 
remove the old div.

When you try and use document.getElementById() to get the new DOM node, you get a null value. This 
only happens in Safari. I have tested in IE, Opera, Firefox _and_ Konqueror and they all seem to work.

There is a work around which can be found here: http://www.darkrock.co.uk/bug-workaround.html

This works by removing the node before creating the new one. I believe this to be a genuine Webkit
