"strings are automatically evaluated" - NOT!

quote from:


This method is no longer necessary in jQuery - all scripts included in HTML strings are automatically evaluated when injected into the document. No substitute method is needed."

if you have this, the click event gets bound (works).

any html/text <span id="foo">bar</span> any html/text

if you do it the other way round, the event does not get bound (does not work):

any html/text <span id="foo">bar</span> any html/text

I am not sure if this is a feature, for me it's a bug.

Sorry, on closer examination this actually wasn't a close enough duplicate so I'm reopening it.

Fixed in [4094]. Now all scripts are postponed till after the html is inserted. Unfortunately, $(document).ready() doesn't work with html insertion so at this time it makes sense to postpone all script evaluation since some of them (depending on where they are in the html) have to be postponed anyway. This gives the most consistent results.
