This is a dup of #4484.

I believe this ticket is not a duplicate.

4484 says (if I got it right) that when you use html() for an element, you need to support a parameter that's valid html in a div.

4559 reports you can create an AREA tag (test 1 passes), but you can't support inline attributes to it (test 2-4 fails) - and only fails in FF.

If your argument was true, $('<area/>') and $('<li/>') would also fail as these are not valid html in the document/div scope - but they succeed, both in IE and in FF.

I agree they're not exactly the same but they seem to be pretty related. You are using XHTML 1.0 Transitional in your doc and that doctype says that AREA tags are only valid within a MAP. In particular,

  alert($("<div><br /></div>").html());    // "<br>"
  alert($("<div><area /></div>").html());  // ""
  alert($("<map><area /></map>").html());  // "<area>"

These aren't dependent on jQuery; try it with bare DOM, a div, and .innerHTML.

Like I said in #4484, it may be possible to do a fix in jQuery.clean (basically, detect AREA tags and wrap it in a map).

Replying to dmethvin:

I see your point, and I've RTFM; please set the ticket to duplicate and close it. :)

Please note that even though http://docs.jquery.com/Core/jQuery is adequately documented regarding this issue, http://docs.jquery.com/Html is not.

I'll open a new ticket with my feature request.
