Ticket #206 (closed feature: wontfix)
IE 6 removes whitespace, eg. when using append
|Reported by:||joern||Owned by:|
The problem is documented here: http://www.quirksmode.org/bugreports/archives/2004/11/innerhtml_and_t.html
There is also a workaround. I wonder if it may be possible to include this workaround in jQuery.
I added a test to SVN.
