When using the parent and closest methods to walk up an SVG DOM tree in jQuery 1.9.1, filtering by selector does not work.


It looks *possible* Sizzle changed their XML element detection...

Thank you, I do understand this.

It is strange that maintaining a predictable API is taking a back seat here.

I went through the duplicates, this issue is re-occurring and this XML feature seems to appear and disappear in various jQuery versions. It works one day and not the next with "wont fix" as the resolution. Why not just fix it?

My bad for the duped report though. Appreciate you guys.

I understand and appreciate that viewpoint, but SVG support is peripheral to our primary purpose with jQuery core and thus not guaranteed, though we do incorporate fixes on a case-by-case basis when their size/performance impact is sufficiently small.

The jQuery SVG plugin attempts to provide better support, and you'll be happy to note that your particular application is in fact functional with the latest Sizzle update via jquery-git: http://jsfiddle.net/DruHG/4/
