the html() function return a wrong content, it help me add some unwant "<p>" tag (can see belows example code)

the alert for IE will be "<p>show<span id=hidden><div>this is a div</div>this is a testing</span><p></p>"

an unwanted <p> added before the </p>

but it works great at firefox

example code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-W3CDTD XHTML 1.0 StrictEN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"> <html>


<title>testing</title> <script src="./script/jquery-1.3.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script language="javascript">


var content = $("div.test-body").html();

alert(content); $("div.test-body").html(content);



<style type="text/css">

#hidden {






<div class='test-body'>

<p>show<span id="hidden"><div>this is a DIV</div>this is a testing</span></p>

IE does not understand XHTML, and will treat your document using HTML4 rules. In HTML4, the <p> element cannot contain other block-level elements such as <div>, so your markup is invalid as far as IE is concerned.
