Comment:
The namedItem(key) method must return the first node in the collection that
matches the following requirements:
•It is an a, applet, area, embed, form, frame, frameset, iframe, img, or
object element with a name attribute equal to key, or,
•It is an element with an ID equal to key.

This could be a potential problem. All elements can have an ID attribute. What
if you have an element with an ID attribute with the value "foo" which is part
of a collection and you have another element (from the list of applicable
elements) that has a name attribute with a value "foo" which is also a member
of the same collection. Which element is returned? Or is an array or another
collection of elements returned that contains all elements that have a name
attribute with the value "foo" and the element with the attribute ID with the
value "foo"?
