#14142 closed bug (fixed)

Wrong number of elements returned in XML document with numeric IDs in Safari

In a very special case find returns the wrong number of elements when used on an XML document with elements that have numeric ids. The exact conditions for this bug to occur are:

  • Safari only
  • The selector used is of the form "parent children"
  • One of the children has an id attribute with the value corresponding to the number of children

For a detailed example see: http://jsfiddle.net/fHs96/10/

The same bug probably also occurs on HTML documents (HTML5 allows numeric ids).

You've certainly hit an interesting corner case... we use an unusual iteration pattern because <NodeList>.length is unreliable on Internet Explorer (allowing elements with id "length" to mask the numeric property), but this shows that <NodeList>[<index>] is similarly unreliable on Safari.
