Luckily this has already been discovered and hacked around:


This hack can also be applied via document.write(), so it can be
integrated into existing scripts that fix legacy IE renderings via the
document.createElement() hack.  (The only restriction is that it
immediately switches IE parsing into body mode, so it must be the very
last thing in <head>.)
