#11058 closed bug (duplicate)

jQuery.clone() ignores dynamically updated "selected" attribute in WebKit, Gecko & Trident.

I've not dug deep enough to check whether this clone() is using cloneNode or the shim in each of these cases, but on the surface, I've managed to get the expected result using Opera 11's Presto rendering engine, but not in Chrome 17, Firefox 8 or Internet Explorer 9.

Here's a jsFiddle that captures the issue... Source: http://jsfiddle.net/collypops/WHPZ5/6/ Result: http://jsfiddle.net/collypops/WHPZ5/6/embedded/result/

In the example, I've pre-selected the first option, which is cloned perfectly. Try changing the selected options - you should notice that the 'original' list is updated, yet the 'clone' list remains unchanged.

Of course, this is a fault of the browser engines themselves, but seeing as jQuery's goal is to smooth out browser inconsistencies, perhaps something could be done on this end.

I will also raise issues with the separate browser vendors.
