jQuery.ParseXML - Unable to retrieve element text

Reported by: anonymous Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone: None
Component: core Version: 1.6.3
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


Executing the following code does not alert the text contained within the summary element. It seems to be an issue with && occurring in the element.

var xmlDoc = $.parseXML('<?xml version="1.0"?><calculate><result>true</result><summary>true && true = true</summary></calculate>');
$xml = $(xmlDoc);

I don't think this is a jquery issue, op just needs to use a cdata wrapper in his xml tag

<summary><![CDATA[true && true = true]]></summary>

It is a jQuery bug(I spent some hours until I found the problem) Please change xml.async = "false"; to xml.async = false;
