Dynamically inserting extra closing tag throws error in IE

I was loading (.load()) a PHP page containing row/cell html into a table and was receiving an Object Expected error in IE7 for line 103 char 403 of the jQuery file. I accidentally put a superfluous </table> tag at the end of the imported page. Removing it fixed the issue.

I also tested with .html and .get/.post and received the same error. It works fine in Firefox and Chrome.

That's why the docs say:

To ensure cross-platform compatibility, the snippet must be well-formed. Tags that can contain other elements should be paired with a closing tag ...

If the html is well-formed (as it should be) I don't think there's a problem. Error cases often perform inconsistently cross-browser.
