IE8 issue creating jQuery objects that start with "<xml>"

In IE8, using jQuery 1.9 and later, I see the following interesting behavior:

$("<div>test</div>");  //works
$("<xyz>test</xyz>");  //works
$("<xml>test</xml>");  //THROWS ERROR

The specific error this returns is as follows:

"Unable to get property 'ownerDocument' of undefined or null reference"
