I think you're right, we don't want reparsing here.
http://bugzilla.opendarwin.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3905 says that Webkit will
have this in the next version, despite IE not doing it.
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=21005 says that Mozilla won't
do it, despite the fact that it does.
Opera and IE don't do this.
Anyone care to comment from the browser vendors? :-)
