Ticket #10127 (closed bug: worksforme)

Opened 3 years ago

text() returns value with a space on the end of <li>s in ie7 - ie8+, ff, chrom, opera all do not.

Spent an hour or so debugging some code which uses the .text() function on li's - take a look at the console output of this in ie7 vs different browsers:  http://jsfiddle.net/gAGjk/3/

innerText is also returning the same thing, so I assume it's an ie7 DOM or js bug; either way, it would be nice for jQuery to realise this and present a consistent cross-browser behaviour.

I can't repro this on IE8 with any version, they all show length of 26 chars. However, if there was a trailing space it would be in line with the documentation that indicates browsers deal with whitespace differently.

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