focus() on contenteditable DIV with height & width of 0

For a DIV of size 0 with contenteditable true, jQuery focus() method doesn't seem to work. When I replace it with .get(0).focus(), the native JS method, it works.

Here's the exact code:

var pasteCatcher = $(document.createElement("div"));

pasteCatcher.attr("contenteditable","true").css({width : "0", height : "0", overflow : "hidden", outline : 0});


$(document).bind("paste", function() {

pasteCatcher.focus(); // does not work but .get(0).focus() works
