Script tags stripped from innerHTML on .load() (IE5.5)

When returning a block of html such as the following the Script tag and anything within is removed. This means that contained script is not executed.

<div>Text</div><script type="text/javascript">alert('Working');</script><div>More Text</div>

On investigating the responseText contains the script, a callback such as function(html){alert(html);} displays the script, whereas if you perform an ALERT($('element').html()); the script is absent.

From further checks setting the innerHTML of an element to a piece of HTML doesn't seem to strip out the script so I am unsure what is causing this.

A fix to this is as reported in bug #16 to add a character (or as I have found to add <table style="display:none"></table> in front of the script)

A simple workaround is to simply avoid using load to get scripts, use $.getScript instead (and ommit the wrapping html).

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