Hi Adam,

Yes, see 12.4, the stack of open elements always contains a <html> root 
in the fragment case when there is a context element:

     Let root be a new html element with no attributes.
     Set up the parser's stack of open elements so that it contains just
     the single element root.

Best regards,
