It probably has to do with the lack of an html5 shim on the page, but it's hard to know for sure without a test case. In the future, support can be found on the forums or in the #jquery irc channel.

i diseagree. I think jquery should behave the very same way accross all supported browser. if a hack is needed for ie, so jquery should do it automaticaly.

Did you include an HTML5 shim? We can't do that for you.
