IE: Cloning an element that contains an applet: Error: Object doesn't support this property or method

Reported by: malsup Owned by: flesler
Priority: low Milestone: 1.3
Component: core Version: 1.2.6

Demo page here:

The error occurs in jQuery's clone method when it tries to access the innerHTML property of a temporary container. If the container contains an applet, then accessing innerHTML throws an exception in IE. I'm currently using a try/catch around the innerHTML access (line 292 in jQuery 1.2.6) to work around the problem.
