Thank you for submitting a ticket to the jQuery Bug Tracker!

In order for us to evaluate the bug you are experiencing, we'll need you to submit a reduced test case on http://jsfiddle.net that reproduces the behaviour you are experiencing so that we can further establish whether this is indeed a bug.

Furthermore, please test your code using jQuery 1.4.4 to confirm if the behaviour you are seeing is still there with the latest version of core.

Two issues with the following code:

$.get('tmp-product-detail.htm', function(template) {



First, template here is an HTML string obtained as content of the tmp-product-detail.htm file. jQuery Templates are not necessarily valid or well-formed HTML, and so many issues can arise if you define them as content of a non-script HTML element. They should be defined as content as script elements or as strings. Loading remotely should either be a strings, or as content of script elements within a remote page loaded through $.get.

Secondly, if you have a template as a string, you should render it by compiling a named template, or by using $.tmpl( templateString, data).appendTo( '#content' );

$( templateString ).tmpl(data).appendTo( '#content' ) is incorrect. Again, $( selector ).tmpl is used when selector is a selector to a script element, not a template string, which as I say, may not even be valid HTML.

Rick, I think the issues here are browser-specific side-effects of the above errors in using the APIs so we should be able to close this.
