IE7 and IE8 issues with .load() and .html()

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: [email protected]
Priority: undecided Milestone: None
Component: unfiled Version: 1.8.2

Blocked by: Blocking:


IE7 and IE8 don't load some HTML, especially if invalid.

// This doesn't work sometimes

// This does consistently:
$('#example').[0].innerHTML = data;

I believe it may have to do with unrecognized attributes like "<div data-name="test"></div>".

$('#example').[0].innerHTML = data;

should be:

$('#example')[0].innerHTML = data;

Thank you so much, in IE 8 using $('#example')[0].innerHTML = data; has worked.

I figured out why it was working with innerHTML and not with html().

Problem wasn't because of unrecognized attributes but invalid HTML. Once I found the extra ending tag, it started working in IE8.
