Regression/BC break from #6963

Posting as new bug since no comments were given on the closed bug that was updated with this new information.

There is a bit of a possible regression/BC break in #6963, but I believe it only affects IE. Prior to this change, jQuery could find XML elements within the document; after this change, it cannot. Evidently, XML nodes in IE do not have a parentNode.

While I understand the hazards of going to extensive measures to support IE, it seems like it would deserve more consideration than a Blackberry device.

Please see the following fiddle:

i think its a combination of both, IE9 and JQuery. because when you run  http://jsfiddle.net/fkling/Em2Yq/ in normal IE mode all works fine. as soon you change Document Mode to IE8 it doesn't find the xml element.

I am only testing in IE8, which your new fiddle definitely fails on as well.

I just did another test using IE8 browser and its not working there as well. so just confirming anonymous test.

created a new fiddler to test:  http://jsfiddle.net/superbDeveloper/Z3CHc/4/

  • Status changed from open to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Milestone changed from 1.next to 1.8

This seems to work now

Please follow the  bug reporting guidlines and use  jsFiddle when providing test cases and demonstrations instead of pasting the code in the ticket.
