<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">

<title>Insert title here</title>

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery/jquery-1.9.1.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="NewFile.js"></script>



<table border="1" id="a">


<table style="display:none">

<tr id ="tpl_row">

<td><a href="#">Col1</a></td>

<td> Col2 </td>








function document_ready()


var tbl = $("#a");

var row_tpl = $("#tpl_row");

var rows = [

["<span>Row1<span><A href=\\"#\\">Link1</A>","Ok"],

["<span>Row2<span><br/><A href=\\"#\\">Link2</A>","Error"],


for(var i in rows)


var row = row_tpl.clone();

for(var k = 0; k <2; ++k)


row.find(":nth-child(" + (k+1) + ")").html(rows[i][k]);

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a complete reduced test case on jsFiddle to help us assess your ticket.

Additionally, be sure to test against the jQuery Edge version to ensure the issue still exists. To get you started, use this boilerplate: Open the link and click to "Fork" (in the top menu) to get started.

Also, make sure to test with a doctype that will trigger standards mode; 4.01 Transitional with a system identifier triggers different modes in different browsers.

You're cloning an element with an ID, then reinjecting multiple copies into the document, creating an invalid document. Work out these issues with some helpful people on a forum and only file a bug when you've established there is a jQuery bug.
