Wine's DOM implementation is mostly a stub. Only basic functions
are implemented (that is functions used by apps I've been working on).
Others are usually trivial to implement but there is a lot of them.
Anyways if you write an app and look for parser lib, I'd suggest using
something else, eg Gecko.
