#5405 closed enhancement (invalid)

Use of "class" key in "attr()" properties object caused Safari to fail to load

I had the following line of code in my JS file:

$(object).attr({ class: 'myClass' });

It caused Safari to fail to load my entire page. When I changed class to className, it worked:

$(object).attr({ className: 'myClass' });

I feel this should either be well documented or fixed in the code to account for the use of the "class" key name.

You should use the proper api: .addClass().removeClass()

Javascript defines class as a reserved word so it's bad Javascript syntax to say {class: "blah"} regardless of whether jQuery is used on the page or not.
