$('<style/>').append('styles') throws error in IE

Reported by: james_padolsey Owned by:

Try this:

$('<style type="text/css"/>').append('body{background:red;}')

Throws a runtime error in IE (6/7).

Instead of appending the text node the styles need to be added via --styleElement.styleSheet.cssText--

I don't think this is a bug to be fixed, but I'll leave it open until we can find some place to document it.
