jQuery 1.2.6 crashes Safari 2.0.4 consistently when using appendTo()

Appending a block of HTML (containing some div, img and anchor nodes) to the body element crashes Safari 2.0.4 consistently. The browser just shuts down once the dom ready code executes.

An example is here: http://www.subchild.com/j/1.2.6-safari-bug.html

Please view the source (in a different browser) to see some comments and alternate methods which produced same or similar results.

This problem did not exist in prior version of jQuery.

Note: while this technique for concatenating strings may not be popular or recommended, it is valid and should be supported in my opinion. That said, I'm not a huge fan of it myself.

Thanks for making and supporting the ultimate JavaScript library.

Related to bug #3397. Characters not inside of tags crash Safari 2; #3397 contains a patch which works around the problem.
