Note that in the original ticket there was a mention of it failing when the link was created using innerHTML. The jsfiddle posted on the closing of the bug didn't use a dynamically created link. The following test case shows that it is failing in IE7 when the link is added to the page dynamically:

jQuery doesn't do that, IE does. We just put the text you asked for in .innerHTML and IE hoses it before we can get the real attribute. The only way around that would be to parse the entire HTML string into DOM ourselves and that ain't happening. oldIE is slow enough already.
