XML parsing-related bug in IE

Description

The each loop is never entered in IE6/IE7, but works just fine in Firefox 2:

function testXml()
{
	var theXml = "<test><item id='1'>one</item><item id='2'>two</item></test>";		
	
	$(theXml).find('item').each(function() 
	{
		var theItem = $(this);
		var theId = theItem.attr("id");
		var theText = theItem.text();		
		alert("Id=" + theId + " Text=" + theText);
	});
}

However, if I introduce a conditional XML DOM parse, the above example works just fine:

function testXml()
{
	var theXml = "<test><item id='1'>one</item><item id='2'>two</item></test>";		
	theXml = parseXml(theXml);
	
	$(theXml).find('item').each(function() 
	{
		var theItem = $(this);
		var theId = theItem.attr("id");
		var theText = theItem.text();		
		alert("Id=" + theId + " Text=" + theText);
	});
}

function parseXml(xml)
{	
	if (jQuery.browser.msie)
	{
		var xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM"); 
		xmlDoc.loadXML(xml);
		xml = xmlDoc;
	}
	
	return xml;
}

Resolution: wontfix
Status: newclosed

Check this link : http://docs.jquery.com/Core/jQuery#html The jQuery constructor only supports html, not xml. The string is flushed into a div, that probably why IE blows up. Because the string isn't valid html.

I can't believe this isn't supported.

wontfix means the patch does work, or not? Why this can't be fixed?
