Description Ryosuke Niwa 2015-09-03 18:32:32 PDT
var div = document.createElement('div');

var range = document.createRange();

throws a INVALID_NODE_TYPE_ERROR but it shouldn't.

The problem is that checkNodeBA throws this exception when the root node of refNode is not a document, a document fragment, or an Attr node.

This bug was found by the newly added LayoutTests/http/tests/w3c/dom/ranges/Range-selectNode.html
