Inconsistent Results when Appending to Collection Created from String

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.
