Cross-Browser XML parsing support breaks for IE9

Problem found in version 1.7.1

When you call $.parseXML(<xmlstring>) passing a valid (well formed ) XML string the string is parsed but examination of the DOM shows an "unspecified error" has been raised.

The problem occurs in the first few lines of the parseXML method:-

parseXML: function(data){

var xml, tmp try{

if (window.DOMParser) { Standard

As a temp workaround on our system we have altered the if (...) statement to perform a browser check instead of the DOMParser support check

if ($.browser.msie)

This forces it to use the Microsoft.XMLDOM and not the DOMParser()
