.data() does not parse JSON set via JS

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

From the jQuery docs:

"When the data attribute is an object (starts with '{') or array (starts with '[') then jQuery.parseJSON is used to parse the string..."

Here's the test:

Isn't it possible to try parseJSON() on every returned data string that begins with { or [ rather than only trying it the first time:

"The data- attributes are pulled in the first time the data property is accessed and then are no longer accessed or mutated (all data values are then stored internally in jQuery)."
