.find not working with first element

.find doesn't appear to work if the searched for element is the first element it encounters.

Assume I have a page with a table on it that has an id of 'cheese', I want to make an ajax call to replace the table.

If I return:

<table id='cheese'><tr><td>Something</td></tr></table>

from an ajax call


type: 'GET, url: 'something.php', dataType: "html", success: function(data) {

var $response=$(data); var ourdata = $response.find('#cheese');



jQuery doesn't find the table. If I wrap the table in, for example

<div id='fake'> <table id='cheese'><tr><td>Something</td></tr></table> </div>

jQuery will find it.

You want .filter, not .find. In the future, please use the jQuery Forum for support requests.
