Further, if there's whitespace at the start of the table, the <tbody> replaces
it instead of being added after it. So the <tbody> is the first child of the
table. That's what the code on the website depends on. It gets the table and
then calls childNodes[0].appendChild to add a row to the table. This relies on
the table body being node 0. But the markup has whitespace, something like


IE adds the <tbody> and seems to discard the whitespace! I'm not sure what we
can do to be compatible with a site like this.
