insertAfter loses script tags

If I clone some html that includes a script tag, the script gets cloned. However, if I then do an insertAfter() with that clone, the script tag gets lost.

Example (using jquery-1.3.2):

<div id="clone_me">

<script> ({option_a: 17}); </script> <span>Hello</span>

</div> <button onclick="jQuery('#clone_me').clone(true).insertAfter(jQuery(this));">

click me </button>

jQuery('#clone_me').clone(true).find('script').text() -> "({option_a: 17});" jQuery('#clone_me').clone(true).insertAfter(jQuery(this)).find ('script').text() -> ""

Tested with firefox 3.0.7

Why do you want the actual script tag to remain? jQuery needs to be careful with leaving the script tags in because it doesn't want to execute the scripts multiple times.

Not all script tags contain code... e.g. JQuery Templates

Jquery API seems to destroy jquery templates in lots of circumstances, if one wraps them in script tags as per the documentation, resulting in strange errors.
