using .html() to change title causes errors in IE

I tried to use the html() method to automatically unescape a string containing html entities to change the title in my page as the content changes via ajax. I realize that search engine spiders do not see this... I am doing it for the benefit of the users of the page who request a new page be loaded via ajax.

Example code:

$("title").html("Sweet title • with html escaped chars");

This produces an error on IE. I tested IE7 and 8 and both had an exception.

For now I am just using document.title = $("<div>"+str+"</div>").html(); to handle the unescaping but I figured I would report the bug.
