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/
