Ticket #6053 (closed bug: invalid)
Cannot use unconnected dom nodes as context
|Reported by:||dwt||Owned by:|
$ var a = $('<div id="bar" />') $ a.get() > [<div id="bar">] $ a.is('#bar') > true $ $('#bar', a).get() >  > $('#bar', a.get()).get() > 
This should work. It would also make unit testing without actually stuffing something into the dom much easier (and faster as it would prevent the browser redraws).
