#4622 closed bug (worksforme)

Jquery cannot get .text() or .html() from Div in IE8

Reported by: ericbojo Owned by: john

If you end a <div> tag with <div /> instead of <div> </div> you cannot get or set the inner html (= null) or text (= ""). I only tested in IE8, Using the $("#xxx").html(); and $("#yyy").text(); functions.

I am not seeing any problem with IE8 8.0.6001.18702 (the shipping version).

However, remember that *no* version of IE supports XHTML. The IE tag-soup parser often manages to make sense of whatever you throw at it, but any use of self-closing tags is not officially supported by Internet Explorer. jQuery doesn't have any control over this.
