#10127 closed bug (worksforme)

text() returns value with a space on the end of <li>s in ie7 - ie8+, ff, chrom, opera all do not.

Spent an hour or so debugging some code which uses the .text() function on li's - take a look at the console output of this in ie7 vs different browsers: http://jsfiddle.net/gAGjk/3/

innerText is also returning the same thing, so I assume it's an ie7 DOM or js bug; either way, it would be nice for jQuery to realise this and present a consistent cross-browser behaviour.

I can't repro this on IE8 with any version, they all show length of 26 chars. However, if there was a trailing space it would be in line with the documentation that indicates browsers deal with whitespace differently.
