Internet Explorer (IE) doesnt fallback to use node content...e.g. needs value attribute

ex. doesnt work


ex. works

<option value="1">1</option>

checking on firefox this is not a problem, on IE 6 up to IE 7 (win 2000 and winxp)

This is not a bug. The val() method makes no attempt at solving cross-browser issues like this. It simply returns the current value of the element's value property. FF implicitly promotes an option element's text to the value property if the value attribute is missing.
