selector bug with div and script

Reported by: ShoAn Owned by:
Priority: undecided Milestone:
Component: selector Version: 1.4.2
Keywords: selector script tag Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


I tried to migrate from 1.3.2 to 1.4.2.

If I want to select a div, which contains a script tag, I found a different behavior between these versions: jQuery 1.4.2 returns the script tag, too ... ?? tested on ff 3.6.2 and ie 8

<div id="test">

<script type="text/javascript">$('#test'));$('\\

output with jQuery 1.3.2


output with jQuery 1.4.2

[div, script]

Thanks for the report, but this is not a jQuery bug. The script tag is only removed once an element is added to the DOM.
