Is this expected behavior? No, nothing in the DOM Core specification indicates that changing Document.doctype affects the document element. As far as I remember, the only "magic" regarding Document.documentElement happens at creation time when using DOMImplementation.createDocument(...). > Does it make sense?

It doesn't make sense from XML 1.0 or Namespaces in XML 1.0. Philippe
