Description

Taken from mailing list, posted by Claudio Procida:

Apparently, jQuery can't set the "type" attribute of html input fields to look like Cocoa search fields in Safari. jQuery version: 1.2.3 Safari version: 3.1 (525.13) Proof follows:

<html> 
<head> 
<script src="jquery-1.2.3.min.js"></script> 
<script> 
$(function() { 
// this works: 
//document.getElementById('s_f').setAttribute('type', 'search'); 
// these don't work: 
$('#s_f').attr('type', 'search'); 
$('#s_f').attr({type: 'search'}); 
}); 

</script> 
</head> 
<body> 
        <input type="text" id="s_f" /> 
</body> 
</html>

jQuery doesn't support setting the type attribute. There are just too many problems and input elements are not meant to change type. The best you can do is remove the element and replace it with a new element of the desired type.
