Just a FYI. You have to deal with the edge case that the root element
might be <html:script>. Non conforming obviously, but what's supposed to
happen should still be defined. I guess you would ignore calls to
document.write() in such cases or perhaps copy the element and put it
inside a <html:html> element and try again... Ouch!

Not sure if nested <html:script> element would make things harder here...
