The "<html>" start tag token causes you to jump from the "initial"
insertion mode to the "before html" insertion mode, and then the <html>
element is created and you jump to "before head".
You then hit the "end of file" token, and that causes the <head> element
to be generated, and switches you to "in head", where <head> is popped and
you switch to "after head", where you insert a <body> element and switch
to "in body", at which point you stop parsing.
