[IE] table not 'setting' tbody properly when using .html on it.

For some reason in Internet Explorer (6,7 & 8) trying to set a table contents with .html doesn't work, this results in a empty table, However this does work in Firefox.

Example: html: <table id="test_id"></table>

js: $('#test_id").html("<tr><td>test</td></tr>");

-- I did find a fix by changing the js to: $('#test_id").children('tbody').html("<tr><td>test</td></tr>");

But now it doesn't work in firefox, however I did fix it by changing my html to: <table id="test_id"><tbody></tbody></table>

I expected .html to add a <tbody> to a table if it doesn't exists and set the <tbody> to the html value defined.

You can't append a tr to a table. Tables can have multiple tbody tags. Although the innerHTML implementation of some browsers may try to create a valid tree by inserting tags for you, it is better to be specific.
