prev() doesn't work in IE

Code $("ul").prev("li") doesn't work in IE. Opera & Firefox work as expected. Code below demostrates the error: "li" tags are not marked by red color in IE.

<script src="jquery-1.2.3.js"></script>

  <li id="1">aaa</li>
  <li id="2">bbb</li>

 $(document).ready(function() {
   $("ul").css("color", "blue").prev("li").css("color", "red");

This appears to be a problem with IE and nested lists. When I debugged it I found IE thought the main UL only had 3 children (being the 3 LIs and not the nested ULs). I don't see how jQuery could realistically work around this browser bug. If you have some idea feel free to reopen the ticket with your thoughts.

Check the wiki to see that prev() is actually working in IE.
