jQuery.parseHTML can't work as expeced

I just wanna to use jQuery.parseHTML to parse a string into an array of DOM nodes. But I had encountered one problem about it.

Please refer to the test case http://jsfiddle.net/ACdXh/1/.

When it parse the string below:

<a title="xxx />">xxx /&gt;</a>

howerver, the result is:

<a title="xxx ></a>">xxx /&gt;</a>

I guess jQuery.parseHTML recognize the a tag as an empty element(sure it can't be), and as for non-empty elements of xhtml, end tags are required so it adds the corresponding end tag to it.

looking forward to your feedback.

thanks, Khalil

Thanks for the report! We can't really fix this without actually parsing content passed to manipulation method, but you can avoid it by escaping potentially dangerous attribute content: http://jsfiddle.net/ACdXh/3/
