JS error trying to get the id of the document in IE8

See and click on the link in IE8.

I get a JS error from this block in Sizzle:

Expr.filter["ID"] = function( id ) {
	var attrId = id.replace( runescape, funescape );
	return function( elem ) {
		//The error occurs here when trying to call getAttribute
                //on the document itself
		return elem.getAttribute("id") === attrId;

Couple of things:

  • There needs to be an
    listener attached to the
    . It doesn't need to do anything, but it must be there.
  • This seems specific to tables, if I switch the
    with a
    the problem does not occur.
  • The issue does not occur in IE7, IE9, or the latest Chrome and Firefox. It seems specific to IE8.

I was unable to debug this any deeper on my own.

I am unable to reproduce on jquery-1.8.3 or jquery-git with IE7 or IE8. Please let us know if you continue to observe this behavior.

It's an IE8 only issue. I see it on in both a real IE8 install as well as IE8 via BrowserStack.

The link is successfully removed but I do get a JS error.

Ah, I see now. Removing the ancestor element makes its parent a DocumentFragment for further event processing, which is invalid input for Sizzle. Sneaky.

This seems like it may still be an issue in the 2.X branch. Here's a repro case ( tested in Chrome Latest ):

dcherman can you open a new ticket? Tagging onto old tickets is not good, even if it might be the same problem. Thanks!
