replaceWith using DOM element with nested script does not run script

Reported by: Phrogz Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone: 1.5
Component: manipulation Version: 1.4.4
Keywords: Cc:
Blocking: Blocked by:


var div = $('<div><script type="text/javascript">alert("hi")<\/script><\/div>'); $('#foo').replaceWith( div[0] );

In jQuery 1.3.2, the above runs the code in the script block. In jQuery 1.4.2, the code is not run.

If you remove the [0], both 1.3 and 1.4 work. You can see test cases at  http://phrogz.net/tmp/jquery_js_in_html/

I can confirm that this issue is present with jQuery 1.4.2, 1.4.3 and 1.4.4, however as mentioned removing [0] does allow the original desired behavior to work  Live Test Case.

I see this issue with jquery1.7.2 - has this issue been fixed? I was seeing this issue in my script and moodified the above test script to use jquery1.7.2.js and replaceWith is not running script.
