Nested links break the $().html() method

The html() method truncates the contents of a link at the start of a nested link in Firefox, Chrome and Safari. Internet Explorer is unaffected.

The following URL demonstrates a test case:  http://ahawryluk.ca/clients/saveyourself.ca/testcase1.html

HTML/javascript source also included as an attachment.

Firefox/Safari/Chrome break the results of the .html() method at the start of the first nested link.

There are obviously workarounds for this, but I don't believe this is expected behaviour.
