Element creation and append fails.

I have come across a weird behavior. I would like to output the following html:

<h5 class="toggle_div"><a href="javascript:void(0);">Text</a></h5> <div class="facets"></div> <div style="clear:both;"></div>

To do this, i thought running the following command would work:

$('<h5 class="toggle_div"></h5>').append($('<a href="javascript:void(0);"></a>').text("Text")).after('<div class="facets" id="test"></div>').after('<div style="clear:both;"></div>');

But it does not. I only get the first header (<h5> and the <a>).

However, the following works:

$('<h5></h5>').addClass('toggle_div').append($('<a href="javascript:void(0);"></a>').text("coucou")).after('<div class="facets" id="test"></div>').after('<div style="clear:both;"></div>');

All i did was set the class of the first created element AFTER its creation.

It does not seem right since i also set classes inside the other elements...

You were expecting the jQuery object to contain the <a> element after the append so that "Text" would be put there, but that's not how jQuery works. Folks on the forum can explain, http://forum.jquery.com .
