Here are two code examples, one using valid XML and another using invalid XML. Both are using 1.4.2 in it's current form:

Valid XML: http://www.addyosmani.com/jquery/6378/index.html Invalid XML: http://www.addyosmani.com/jquery/6378/index2.html

Here is the invalid XML example with your change integrated in the jQuery build included as per your suggestion:


and here's another test similar to the above with a blank XML file used as opposed to just valid input.


What I'm seeing in terms of error output is exactly the same regardless of whether we're using the current lines at 5351 or the lines with your changes included. With this in mind, a developer would be able to sufficiently handle the data returned with additional error checks on the front-end if needed.

Could you please re-open the ticket or re-submit with a detailed explanation and code example to demonstrate why your proposal should be integrated and what benefit it would offer?
