#12318 closed bug (invalid)

Input element with id="nodeType" causes trouble in event-callbacks

If you have an input element with id="nodeType" within a form, there are problems selecting the elements of that form from within the submit callback (and in other events).

Working testcase: http://jsfiddle.net/klaascuvelier/ySth9/11/

I suppose the 'nodeType' attribute of html-elements can be the cause of this problem.

Tested in OSX, browers: Firefox 14.0.1 Google Chrome 23.0 Google Chrome 21.0 Safari 6.0

This bug is also reproducable in earlier jQuery versions, on jsFiddle I tried with versions: 1.8.0, 1.7.2, 1.6.4, 1.5.2, 1.4.4, 1.3.2

Easy workaround is just changing the ID of the element.

nodeType is a special cased property name used by the DOM, the best resolution here is to not use "nodeType" in your own code, unless you're using it to access the nodeType of a DOM node. As you noted, the fix is to change the id
