[whatwg] overlap and Browser DOMs

Consider the following markup:

<div>
<p>...foo<strong id='s1'>...</p>
<p>...bar</strong> </p>
</div>

Notice that the string element starts in one p and finished in the next. 
This is of course malformed and violates the tree structure.

Has anyone documented how different browsers handle this in their 
respective DOMs? e.g. creating three separate strong elements or 
creating one that is a child of three parents?
