Ticket #8749 (closed bug: duplicate)
non-JS script nodes ejected during DOM manipulation
|Reported by:||BenBlank||Owned by:|
Non-JS <script> nodes (such as the <script type="text/html"> nodes often used with jquery-tmpl) are ejected from nodes which pass through $.fn.domManip. Simple test case on jsFiddle.
The culprit appears to be this block in $.clean. The current behavior is obviously deliberate, but on the surface it isn't clear why. It seems to have originated without comment when domManip was switched to DOM fragments prior to version 1.3.
Can we change this behavior? It's very surprising to have nodes reparented like this (especially as JS scripts aren't affected).
