The behaviour is different if you document.write the namespaced HTML 
code - namespace declarations are inferred automatically when you write 
an element using a new prefix. Compare 
http://philip.html5.org/misc/ie-namespace-tests.html to the version 
above: the <baz:quux:foo>, <baz:foo> and <quux:foo> elements get put in 
'baz' and 'quux' namespaces (with no urn) in IE6/8b1.
