next() function returns different results in Firefox and Webkit

To test, here is a simple definition list. The html is invalid XHTML, so I am not sure if this is a case of "Don't mark it up this way", but I figured I'd post this as it was causing me some grief this morning.

$('dt').next() = <dd> in webkit

$('dt').next() = <h5> in firefox



<h5>This is a test</h5>



This is the item that should return

It seems like Firefox terminates the DT element when it sees the H5. You can see the markup change in Firebug. So the traversal is correct for the markup the browser created.
