Ah, great.
I have a patch ready for the recent datatype changes, but it would break binary
compatibility of the C++ DOM interface, so this fix can't be applied until KDE-4.0.

Most of the failing table tests are due to the section reordering issue. I sent
a mail to this list about it, but it remained unanswered. The subject line was
"Order of table sections". I would be glad if this could trigger some discussion :)
I feel that relying on the browser's internal ordering of the table sections 
in the DOM tree is wrong.

I also mailed a fix for HTMLTableElement31, which hasn't been applied.
Re-posting below.


HTMLTableElement31 says it will create a new table and append it to the
document. However it instead creates a table and tries to insert it into
another (empty) table. This is apparently forbidden, per the DOM/HTML

This isn't what the test says it will do, so I think it's a bug in the
test. What about this fix for it?

This adds the new table as a (last) sibling to the existing empty table,
i.e. to a node where we know tables are allowed - and it makes the test
work for me.
