Follow-up:

IE7 apparently just drops the fallback content w/no suspicious side-effects.

Just had a chance to look at these. At least in IE8 (haven't checked 7, and 6 is all sorts of wrong), it appears we have a bug that any fallback content that is block level content causes weird things to happen. (object tag gets duplicated in the DOM--very weird). We'll be looking into this.

Thanks for reporting these issues.

If you'd like to report or discuss a WebKit bug, file it in bugzilla
or post to webkit-dev. I can't personally investigate every bug report
posted on this list (although I will occasionally if I have the time
and it helps to move the conversation forward).

Regards,
Maciej
