The following returns undefined in Safari:

var temp = $(xml).find('yweather

Code snippet to work around this: $.ajax({

type: "GET", url: "./common/getFile.php?feed=http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss?w=" + locationId, dataType: "xml", success: function(xml){

if ($.browser.webkit){

var temp = $(xml).find('condition').attr('temp'); var conditionText = $(xml).find('condition').attr('text'); var code = $(xml).find('condition').attr('code');

}else{ assume Mozilla

var temp = $(xml).find('yweather
:condition').attr('temp'); var conditionText = $(xml).find('yweather
:condition').attr('text'); var code = $(xml).find('yweather

As documented, the $() operator is meant to parse HTML, not XML. Look into $.parseXML() instead.

In general, jQuery does not support namespaces.
