As I said before, currently implementations set the namespaceURI attribute  
of elements to null for documents parsed with an HTML parser. The HTML5  
proposal says that it should be http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml instead.

For the purposes of CSS elements from documents parsed with an HTML parser  
are already in the http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml namespace in Opera,  
Mozilla and I think Safari too. It would only make sense if this was done  
for the DOM too.
