Applets don't work when appended on IE

Reported by: Drawk Owned by: dmethvin

When I append an applet on IE 6, 7, 8 and sometimes 9 (only when mayscript is present as attribute on my test) the applet doesn't work.

If I change this (manipulation.js around the line 24) :

rnocache = /<(?:script|object|embed|option|style)/i,

by this :

rnocache = /<(?:script|object|embed|applet|option|style)/i,

the applet works.

I can see how this could happen, even lacking a test case. Can you provide a simple test case using so we can be sure we're fixing the problem you've identified?

Most likely this will just go away if we stop using a fragment cache in 2.0, but I'm not sure if we'll be doing that refactoring for 1.9; if not we'll need to make that small change to not cache applets.

Fix #12777. Add applet to non-cacheable fragment types.

I don't want to add a unit test that creates a dependency on an applet.
