DOMDocument thinks "<html></html>" has two childNodes?

I'm trying to mess around with PHP5's DOM functions and have run into
something that confuses me:

<?php
$dom = new DOMDocument();
$dom->loadHTML('<html></html>');

echo $dom->childNodes->length;
?>

Why is the output 2? Shouldn't it be 1?

print get_class($dom->childNodes->item(0)) . "<br>";
print get_class($dom->childNodes->item(1)) . "<br>";

print htmlspecialchars($dom->saveHTML());
