Doing $("p").remove() works just fine but doing $("div").remove("p") doesn't work.

I've also created a jsfiddle test:  http://jsfiddle.net/xpT3s/

Wait, what am I thinking. The argument to remove is a filter for the current selection, not a find.  http://jsfiddle.net/timmywil/xpT3s/4/

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