Description Ryosuke Niwa 2014-03-26 22:30:53 PDT
Right now HTMLConverter::_processText walks up the entire ancestor chain to merge their attributed strings.
Doing that for every text node results in O(kn) runtime complexity where k is the depth of the tree and n is the number of text nodes in the tree.
