Ticket #11796 (closed bug: fixed)
Change event doesn't bubble in oldIE when content is copied via .html()
|Reported by:||MoonScript||Owned by:|
This is happening because the content is being retrieved via the .html() function, which includes the jQuery change-delegation artifact on the element: _change_attached="true". When that HTML string is then repopulated into the DOM, the change event does not bubble, because it already contains the _change_attached attribute, so jQuery skips it.
You can see the issue here in IE < 9: http://jsfiddle.net/MoonScript/hcAYz/
