I haven't had those problems.  I have had the problems of not being  
able to find an implementation of getElementsByClassName() that  
worked on an XML node, and not being able to use the XML DOM on  
content retrieved as text/html (e.g. almost everything on the web)  
via XMLHttpRequest.  That's why I personally use the HTML DOM for  
parsing microformats in JavaScript.
