You can reproduce my tests by pointing your browser at:


This will display an alert box with a representation of the
DOM tree showing element and text nodes but not attributes.
The string value from the node's nodeName property are shown
within single quotemarks.

You can then use view source to look at the source markup. Let
me know if you want to create some more tests. For example, it's 
possible that the results will vary according to whether IE is in 
quirks mode or not.

With regards to the CSS tests:

On IE the only word to be highlighted is the second "jones".
The CSS rules in the style sheet are not applied by IE to the
first and third instances of the fred element.

On Opera and Firefox, all three instances are higlighted.

With regards to the parsing tests, I presume that Opera shows
output in uppercase because it thinks it is part of the
predefined html tag set as Anne suggested.
