append function causes mixed content warning on IE when on https page and content to append contains relative link

If the append function is called from a page loaded via https on IE (I tested IE7), and the text to append contains a relative link, then IE will show a mixed content warning (Page Contains Both Secure and Nonsecure Items)

I traced this for a while and it seems to be triggered when the content is appended into the document fragment near the end of jquery's clean function.

I'm sure that this is a IE bug, but perhaps there is a workaround?

This issue is seen with jquery 1.4.2, but not seen with jquery version 1.3.2

I had this happen when trying to render a <object><embed></embed></object> for a swf document.

The workaround we used was to add raw html to the element:

var objectHtml = '<object><embed src="mySwf.swf"></embed></object>'; 
div.innerHtml( objectHtml );

This is a corner case we are not going to look at since a workaround is available and it is unlikely to be discovered by many people. If you want to write a patch that fixes the issue, we would be happy to consider it.

This is not a good workaround. If jQuery isn't used to update the page, it is unaware of the elements that were removed and jQuery.cache does not get cleaned up.
