This might be a reasonable opportunity to publicize some tools that can 
help in this kind of discussion, in case they have slipped under 
anyone's radar:

Hixie's Live DOM Viewer [1]: See the DOM created by your current browser 
given an input markup fragment.

html5lib: [2] An implementation of the HTML 5 parsing algorithm in 
python (please only use the SVN trunk). Not as good as reading the 
parsing section of the spec, but significantly easier ;) Also avaliable 
online [3].
