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.

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