#5429 closed bug (duplicate)

.text() and .html() are mangling values in incorrect ways in Internet Explorer

In an effort to clean up strings of characters which might contain HTML entity characters, I am running the strings through jQuery's .text() and .html() methods. However, doing so mangles newline characters in the text in IE. The following is a test case:

var pretext = "\r\nLine 1\r\n\r\nLine2\r\n\r\n--- Line 3 ---\r\n\r\nLine 4\r\n"; alert(pretext); var text = jQuery("#someid").text(pretext).html(); alert(text);

In Firefox and Chrome, the strings pretext and text display identically. In Internet Explorer, text displays with no new line characters. I have been unable to verify whether this is a different behavior of IE versus the other browsers or whether this is a jQuery quirk.
