jQuery .load with selector <script> tag in HTML comment

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: anonymous
Priority: undecided Milestone: None
Component: unfiled Version: 1.7.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


$('body').load('page.html #something')

will not work if #something has a comment with a script tag in it. e.g.

<div id=something>
bla content blala

bla <script>
this is just a comment!

the above script tag needn't be closed, heck:


^ this is enough to cause the issue

this poor text didn't make it


It doesn't happen when .html-ing
