It would be nice to have in some way compatibility with IE6 for
HTMLSelectElement and Add method. I know that Mozilla has implementation by DOM2
which is 
void Add(in HTMLElement element, in HTMLElement before), but IE6 does not have
that. It has something like void Add(element[, indexBefore]) instead.
Is there a way that you can change decalaration of Add method to somethnig more
IE6 compatibile like: 

Add(in HTMLElement element[, in HTMLElement before])

That will not break DOM2 compatibility!?

Actually, it will....  Further, this is a frozen embedding interface, so it can
no longer change.  Sad, but that is life.

Sad is that Mozilla based browsers will not be widely accepted by users.
