This is a browser bug but as it breaks jQuery functionality I think it is relevant to raise as a jQuery bug.
append() fails when used on a textarea that has had its content changed (either by typing or by amending the .value through the DOM)
Here is a simple page that demonstrates the bug: http://terrordome.co.uk/appendbug/
In IE (6 and 7) - no bug, works as expected In Firefox 18.104.22.168 - append and appendChild fail on an already edited textarea Opera (9.23) - append and appendChild always fail Safari (3.03 on win32) - existing value is ignored and just the appendChild(s) values are used
