jQuery(html) cannot work well. (bug?)

I am using jQuery 1.3.2, development version. Please check the codes: $(function() {

$.get("t.html", function(data) { $(data).find(":header").each(function() { $("body").append("<div>" + $(this).html() + "</div>"); }); }); $("<h1>1</h1><h2>1.1</h2><h3>1.1.1</h3><div><h1>2</h1><h2>2.1</h2><h3>2.1.1</h3></div>")

.find(":header").each(function() {

$("body").append("<div>" + $(this).html() + "</div>");



Below things are shown in IE: 2 2.1 2.1.1

Expect ouput: 1 1.1 1.1.1 2 2.1 2.1.1

The headers out of "<div></div>" cannot be found by ":header" selector.

The .find() method finds elements *below* the elements you provide in the DOM tree. That's why the ones in a <div> are found but the ones immediately in the jQuery object are not. For more help, compare the documentation of .find() to .filter() and please ask for help on the forums before filing bugs to make sure they're bugs.
