XML parsing error with IE

Reported by: nico87 Owned by: john
Priority: critical Milestone: 1.4
Component: selector Version: 1.3.2

This function works well in FF, but not in IE6.

$(xml).find("[name=\"societa\"]").children().each(function() {

menu1+="<span class=\"inline-div padding20\"><a href='"+$(this).attr("href")+"'\">"+$(this).text()+"</a></span>";


Also I've tried to do this:


and FF returns the correct XML code inside <item name='societa'> </item>. IE returns a empty string.

Follows the XML code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <menu>

<item name="societa" href="#">

<voice href="#">Storia</voice> <voice href="#">Certificazioni</voice> <voice href="#">Contatti</voice> <voice href="#">Dove siamo</voice>

</item> <item name="flotta" href="#">

<voice href="#">PZL M18B Dromader</voice> <voice href="#">PZL 104-80 Wilga</voice>



Thank you so much.

It looks like you are trying to parse XML with the $("htmlstring") method. That won't work in general, unless the XML is also valid HTML.


If you need to parse XML, use an XML parser.


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