bug on html method

Reported by: Owned by:
Priority: undecided Milestone: None
Component: unfiled Version: 1.7.2

Blocked by: Blocking:

When I try to write rules using html method into a <style> tag on IE8 and lower I get error.

I debugged and the solution is:

if(style.styleSheet) {

style.styleSheet.cssText = rules;

} else {

style.innerHTML = rules;

little better explanation here:

It's not a bug, but a inconsistency.

After all, we want our beloved jQuery to be bullet-proof, don't we?
