IE does not understand LEGEND tags

Reported by: SineSwiper Owned by: SineSwiper

Component: manipulation Version: 1.7.1

Description

This works in Firefox, but IE8.0 is choking on the following code in jQuery:

prepend: function() {
   return this.domManip(arguments, true, function( elem ) {
      if ( this.nodeType === 1 ) {
         this.insertBefore( elem, this.firstChild );
      }
   });
},

With the this.insertBefore statement, IE errors with "Unexpected call to method or property access". As I understand it, IE does this if you try to, say, insert a DOM child element in a non-container (like IMG). The variables are:

elem = SPAN DOM object
this = LEGEND DOM object (with a type of DispHTMLUnknownElement)
this.firstChild = null
this.nodeType = 1

The prime suspect here seems to be the LEGEND tag, as it looks like IE doesn't actually understand what it is, so it calls it "DispHTMLUnknownElement". If it doesn't know what it is, it may not know that it's a container.

Because we get so many tickets, we often need to return them to the initial reporter for more information. If that person does not reply within 14 days, the ticket will automatically be closed, and that has happened in this case. If you still are interested in pursuing this issue, feel free to add a comment with the requested information and we will be happy to reopen the ticket if it is still valid. Thanks!

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