inconsistent processing for xml vs html

In jQuery 1.2.1, line 783 does this:

div = doc.createElement("div")

The attributes that Firefox creates for div are different depending on whether a page is loaded as foo.html or foo.xml. In particular, when the file is XML, there's no div.innerHTML, only div.textContent. This causes a problem down on line 813:

div.innerHTML = wrap[1] + arg + wrap[2];

When the file is HTML, that statement assigns a value to both div.innerHTML and div.textContent. When the file is XML, that statement creates div.innerHTML and assigns its value, but does not affect div.textContent.

A workaround is to do this:

div.innerHTML = wrap[1] + arg + wrap[2]; div.textContent = arg;

I'm not sure if this is a true workaround, because it fails if arg contains any HTML tags.

See http://pastie.caboo.se/101771. Save this code as foo.html and as foo.xml.

At this point jQuery doesn't support text parsing to xml. While it seems to sort of works in some browsers, really that is just non-standard html (which works in FF for example). While xml support for text parsing like:


may be added to the core at some point, for now it will work inconsistently at best. I'm going to change this to a feature request from a bug.
