<object> & <embed> elements returned as functions using a selector

Reported by: DanJ Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.3
Component: core Version: 1.2.6
Keywords: object, embed Cc: DanJ, flesler
Blocked by: Blocking:

Using this bit of code: $("#example :not('script')")

On this example markup:

<div id="example">




<p>html markup</p>

<object id="something">

<param name="something">

<param name="something_else">

<embed name="something_funky">


<noscript>No script text</noscript>


...returns everything excluding the script, which is fine, however any object or embed tags are returned as functions?

That's how Firebug represents them, doesn't mean they're functions.

Do you find any problem using this ? or just concerned about how they look ?

Returning the value of $("#example :not('script')") returns everything excluding the object and embed markup, be it through an alert, or by setting innerHTML on another node in the page, surely this isn't right?

need: ReviewTest Case

Could you provide a test case ? a minimalistic html file with the requires html and js to reproduce the problem.

This is a Firefox problem. I'm attaching a simpler test case that doesn't use jQuery but shows the same problem. If you call jQuery.isFunction on this DOM element in function's clothes, it will return false as it should.

Ok then, no issue here.

Reopen if you find any problem.
