I cloned an element which contains an anchor tag with a relative value in the href attribute. In Firefox, this cloned correctly however in IE7 it added the base url creating the anchor tag in the cloned element with an absolute url.

Unfortunately this is a bug in the IE parser that we cannot work around. If you want to set an href of an element in IE<8 that does not end up absolutized, you must use the .attr function.
