Inconsistent Results when Appending to Collection Created from String

Blocking: Blocked by:


When a collection contains an element that cannot be appended to (i.e. style, img, br), $.fn.append will throw an error in IE 6, 7, and 8 (but not in, for instance: IE 9, Firefox 3+, Chrome 16, or Safari 4).

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to invalid

The result of doing something invalid is undefined and can certainly differ across browsers. I actually wish all browsers threw errors for this, so it would be easier for people to find their mistakes.

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