Reproduce XML serialization error for HTML br element

My browser is Chromium    6.0.472.62 (Developer Build 59676) Ubuntu 10.04, WebKit    534.3 V8

I am using XMLSerializer.serializeToString to serialize an HTML element and its content to XML. Unfortunately serializing content including a BR element then results in malformed XML. This is a nuisance when serializing markup to a server for download by other browsers, e.g. as part of a browser-based document editor.

Other browsers e.g. Firefox get this right.

Try viewing the attached HTML document in webkit, Opera and Firefox to see what I mean.
