# The elements should be rendered much the same as span  elements.

It appears that for HTML most UAs (tested in IE, Firefox and Opera) they are
treated equivalent to the SPAN element:

For XHTML, however, UAs do different things:

Opera does not render OPTGROUP elements and Firefox has some default styling.
Selection seems also to be different. Are these to be considered bugs?
