Note: document.documentElement.parentElement MUST alerts null unlike document.documentElement.parentNode
Comment 3 bugzilla33 2011-09-09 00:50:27 PDT
IE, Chrome, Safari, Opera and Konqueror support parentElement
Comment 4 Olli Pettay [:smaug] 2011-09-09 02:08:16 PDT
(Opera at least doesn't seem to support parentElement in all the nodes. Chrome does. Don't know about others)
Comment 5 Anne (:annevk) 2011-09-09 05:59:12 PDT
Opera has an open bug on moving parentElement elsewhere. We are waiting on feedback from Gecko (or an implementation) before moving ahead.

The test isn't clear: is it because it is a text node or because it is out of any document and has no parent?
Comment 8 Olli Pettay [:smaug] 2011-09-09 07:14:14 PDT
I should be clear in the context it is in.
But I can change the text.

We already have a bug on file for this...

Ms2ger, you planning to land that patch?  ;)
Comment 11 Boris Zbarsky [:bz] (still a bit busy) 2011-09-09 08:59:23 PDT
Actually, reopening this bug, since this patch is better than the old one.

Should the new prop go at the end of the interface to reduce the chance of people running into vtable issues?  Maybe it doesn't matter...

You need to rev the iids of all interfaces inheriting from nsIDOMNode.  Use for that.

r=me with the latter fixed and the former at least considered.
