Yeah, IE7 doesn't support some of the features I use (like .textContent). 
It should work fine if you use a more modern browser, like Firefox, 
Safari, or Opera. I didn't do anything to work around browser bugs or 
limitations in the development of this tool (except close two <p> elements 
that were confusing Opera, but then the HTML5 parsing spec isn't a 
standard yet, so that's arguably not their fault); I just followed the 
specs, like we're supposed to.

Given that this is a standards working group, requiring a browser that 
supports three year old standards seems reasonable. No?
