#3904 closed bug (worksforme)

$('<span> </span>') ie bug - jQuery 1.2.6 & 1.3 both

$('<span> </span>').contents().length is 1 in firefox and safari, 0 in ie (6 & 7). (maybe hard to read: this is a span containing a single space) I have a work-around: $('<span/>').text(' ').contents().length is 1 everywhere.

jQuery 1.2.6 & 1.3 both.

That's actually the way contents() works:


As .html() mentions, browsers don't always treat white space the exact same way. That's outside the control of jQuery though.
