you can fool IE into recognising new HTML elements by doing things like 
this:

this can be achieved in javascript by creating a namespace in memory using:
document.namespaces.add(..);
(using javascript) you can replace the unrecognised elements with a 
namespaced version. i use this technique here:
http://dean.edwards.name/IE7/src/?ie7-html
by using a bit of javascript you can fix the DOM pretty good.
let me know if you want to see a more generic fix.
