------- Comment #10 from ap at webkit.org  2007-07-17 07:37 PDT -------
We match Firefox in that createElement() always creates HTML elements (even in
SVG documents), so the difference is that Firefox uses a null namespace for
HTML elements, and we use http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml.

In this, we follow the current HTML5 draft, so Firefox and Opera may get the
same behavior some day. Alternatively, a better solution for HTML5 will be
found, and then WebKit will need to change again.

>From the draft: To ease migration from HTML to XHTML, UAs conforming to this
specification will place elements in HTML in the http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml
namespace, at least for the purposes of the DOM and CSS. The term "elements in
the HTML namespace", or "HTML elements" for short, when used in this
specification, thus refers to both HTML and XHTML elements.

So, I'm closing this bug as WONTFIX (it's valid in that we don't match other
browsers or any final specification, but it was a deliberate decision).
