In KJS, the objects returned by document.createElement don't inherit Element unlike in Gecko or Opera. This conforms well with the W3C recommendation, since that recommendation only needs these objects to satisfy the "Element" interface but AFAIK not to inherit anything. However this makes impossible a rich set of scripting possibilities and techniques. I therefore highly appreciate if these objects inherited from Element in further releases.
