[thelist] Creating DOM element from a string

I have a string (e.g. "<input type='text' value='salam!' />"). Is
there any way to convert the String into a DOM element and access its
properties? Or I should use regex for handling such cases.

A simple solution could be inserting this string into an invisible
element's innerHTML, and then accessing the DOM object.
