#12973 closed bug (notabug)

IE8: Selected elements may be lost when calling .text('string')

Reported by: bguertin@… Owned by: bguertin@…
Priority: undecided Milestone: None
Component: unfiled Version: 1.8.3
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


In IE8, the value of: $('<span class="value">').text('text!').length is 0

In other browsers, $('<span class="value">').text('text!').length is 1

It works correctly if you do not specify a class, e.g. $('<span>').text('text!').length is 1 in all browsers

Whoops. You can close this bug. It is fixed in edge, but broken in the stable release. My bad
