clone() function shows a warning in IE8

In IE8 a security warning is shown when cloning a HTML including a LINK tag in HEAD with a relative path.

The example below shows the warning (it has to be used inside an HTTPS connection):

<html> <head>

<script type="text/javascript" src="/path/to/resources/jquery-1.8.3.js"></script> <link href="/path/to/resources/resource.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>

</head> <body> TEST <a href="#" class="test">Clone HTML</a> <script>

$(".test").click(function() {

var newPage = $("html").clone();


</script> </body> </html>

I've tested it with jquery 1.10.0 with same results.

The code works properly in IE9, FF, Chrome and Safari...

Old IE is very picky about content manipulated when it's not connected to a document, and when that document is secure. There doesn't seem to be much we can do about it.
