Selectors break in IE6 with XML strings

I came across this issue because I was using $.load with a selector like 'root > li', and it worked on FF, Safari but on IE6 it didn't. (I haven't tested IE7.)
So I narrowed it down to selectors and made a nice test case for you guys using basically the same method .load uses to insert html to the target element.
It seems to boil down to this, given a string s = <root><span><b>Examplicious</b></span></root>
selector 'root' will be found. selector 'b' will be found. selector 'root > span' will not be found because it names two elements, one which isn't a valid HTML element.
Check the attached test case in different browsers for more examples.
