#11291 closed bug (fixed)

Cloning XMLDoc's with HTML5 nodeName's breaks on IE

Reported by: adebree Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone: 1.7.2
Component: manipulation Version: 1.7.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


For example:

var xmlStr = "<root><meter /></root>";
var xmlDoc = jQuery.parseXML( xmlStr );
var $xmlDoc = jQuery( xmlDoc );

var $meter = $xmlDoc.find( "meter" ).clone();

Due to "meter" being in the list of HTML5 nodeNames jQuery incorrectly uses the shimCloneNode() function for cloning. This results in $meter being a textNode (nodeType 3) and having the data 'undefined'.

And since the regex to detect the node names is only checking the start of the node name this also causes problems for elements in a HTMLDoc like <metering />

Patch is already done, will place a pull request.

This is actually a good argument for the removal of shimCloneNode and createSafeFragment

  • Component changed from unfiled to manipulation
  • Priority changed from undecided to low
  • Status changed from new to open

This is valid, but please provide a test case on http://jsfiddle.net to demonstrate the issue in this ticket.

@rwaldron: I think jQuery should be able to work without html5shim.

jsfiddle for this bug:


Run in IE8 or lower and the nodeType will be 3 instead of the expected 1 showing the clone() does not properly take place.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from open to closed

Fix #11291. Always clone XML docs with a genuine .cloneNode().
