(possibly related to #4059)

Have an html page with 2 iframes. One is named "cible"

When I try to append a dynamically created style element to

the <head> section of the iframe's document (see attached file), IE7 throw the error

htmlfile: non-valid argument

it works well under FF3, Opera & Safari

The exception happens in a method named "clean", line 957 in jquery-1.3.2.js


[debug time - local variables stack =>] i=0, match is undefined, ret[0] is the dynamic style element, context is the good document, elems[0] is the style element too, and fragment seems to me very weird. it has nodeName #document-fragment, and the debugger shows error on particular fields

You're creating the style elements in one document but appending them to another document. Try this instead:

  $(styleStr, doc).appendTo($('head',doc));

Reopen the ticket if the problem is still there.
