xml selector does not seem to work with mixed case tags

I tried today the jQuery ajax capabilities. It's impressive, but I found something strange :

my ajax answer was containing a mixed-case tag, just like :


In my callback function :

function ajaxAnswer(data, textStatus)


var id = $('userId', data).text();


It returns empty string, although in firebug I can see that my answer does contain a userId (and it was working with my old "hand-written" ajax code (with xhr() etc.)

For now I changed all my ajax answers to return only lowercase tags, but it would be nice if people could use mixed case.

Another thing : are params of, params, callback) automatically encodeURIComponent-ed ?

concerning the post-scriptum about encoreURIComponent, I tried to encode my params and it gave me (when getting them back from my DB), a string with caracters encoded, so I guess it's because it's been encoded twice (then the '%' sign has been encoded and then not translated in the php page), so I think that you already encode params, that's great news :)

I ran into the same problem using outside xml feed where they have mixed case tags like "videoItem". Does anyone have a solution for this one?
