Firefox and IE do not check a checkbox from such a document when .click()
is invoked on it, while WebKit and Opera do:
However, when it comes to an <a> element with a target="_blank" attribute
in the same situation, only Opera seems to open the link:
So I've put in a block on the handling of <a> (and <area>) elements
specifically, making their activation behaviour nil if their doc doesn't
have a browsing context (I didn't check if it has to be an active one). A
similar block was present on <form>'s submission algorithm.
