------- Comment #15 from ap at webkit.org  2009-02-19 01:24 PDT -------
(From update of attachment 27769)
+As we cannot test if an HTMLElement is an XHTML
+element, our fix is to check whether it has a prefix and then default
+to XML behaviour for nodeName.

I don't understand this comment (or a FIXME in HTMLElement.cpp) Where is "XHTML
element" defined?

In Firefox, HTML elements created by parsing HTML documents (or via
createElement) have a null namespace, which is not the case in WebKit and in
HTML5. See also

Changing the behavior for names with prefixes seemed logical and safe, but
saying that XHTML elements should be different from HTML elements is an
entirely different thing.
