Full credit to: Matthew Foster for the code below.  I'd like an
explanation of the below.  I'm having some troubles with Object extend
and would like a better explanation of the magic that occurs below.

$C = function(name, options) {
    return Element.extend(Object.extend(document.createElement(name ||
"div"), options || {}));

Sample use:
var next = $C("td", { innerHTML: ">", className: "next" });

So how are the properties innerHTML and className morphed on to this
new td element?
