Thanks, this helps. Keep up the good work.

By the way, I think that you've got a typo in the "in_body" insertion mode, in both the algorithm for handling the start tag whose name is "li" as well as the start tag whose name is one of "dd" or "dt":
* Step 5 of the algorithms indicate to "return to step 2," but I think you mean step _3_.

That matches HTML5 also. (Assuming we change DOM3 Core to not require node adoption, anyway, but I think that's pretty much a given now.)

In HTML5 the parser executes the script but it does so based on where the element was placed, which in this case would mean it executes in the context of the parent browser context also. In particular, if the script contains a document.write() call, assuming the parent document has no active parser, it'll blow away the parent document (by implying a
document.open() call on the parent).
