Adding a colspan attribute does not take effect in IE

$('td').attr('colspan', 5)

This does not appear to work in IE. If you look at the html, the attribute will be there, but it does not change the table. Interestingly enough, this will work

$('table').append('<td colspan="5">Foo</td>')

If you inspect the html afterwards, you will find that IE actually changes the name of the

attribute to be
(uppercase S). Weird!

If you use "colSpan" IE should be appeased. jQuery 1.4 does this for you now.
