map enctype to encoding, depending on browser

Blocked by: Blocking:

I cannot be the first person to raise this request but I cannot find a ticket anywhere. In the .attr(), please harmonize the handling of "enctype" across browsers. For IE this means that jQuery should map "enctype" to "encoding". I figured this out at the end of a frustrating multi-hour debugging session. I really rely on jQuery to take care of these irritating small idiosyncrasies between browsers (lest my code be polluted by browser-specific hacks). Thank you.

This seems legit. Prototype does this translation as well. I think it could be done with a pretty simple feature test.

I created a possible solution in a jsfiddle.

I'll pull a patch sometime soon, unless someone thinks it's a terrible idea?

I usually err on the side of 'this is an enhancement' - but I'd say jQuery should be handling a cross-browser issue like this, so I'll land this as a bug fix (just not the regression kind).

Yeah, we should tackle this - as discussed in the bug triage meeting.

Support setting both the enctype attribute and property (encoding in IE6/7). Fixes #6743.
