Injecting Flash with $.html fails in 1.4 in IE6

Blocked by: Blocking:

Currently, when injecting a string of html that represents a flash element into a dom element via the $.html method in IE6, no change occurs. No errors are thrown, nor is there any odd behavior, the html just doesn't get added.

Not surprisingly, this function is just: DomElement.innerHTML = html;

This also fails in vanilla JS. I would normally be ok with jQuery not supporting this functionality, but it used to work in <= 1.3.2 - so there are plugins and code that are relying on flash injection via the html method.

I'm currently looking into seeing what changed between the versions that could have caused this.
