#8598 closed bug (worksforme)

$.appendTo() fails for audio tag on IE9

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: [email protected]
Priority: low Milestone: 1.next
Component: manipulation Version: 1.5.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


Reproducible test case:

<!--[if lt IE 9]>
var e = ("abbr,article,aside,audio,canvas,datalist,details," +
  "figure,footer,header,hgroup,mark,menu,meter,nav,output," +
for (var i = 0; i < e.length; i++) {
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
	$('<source src="someOtherFile.mp3">').appendTo($('audio'));
<audio controls="true">
	<source src="someFile.mp3">

Expected behaviour: The <audio> tag should have 2 <source> child elements, one pointing to "someFile.mp3" and one pointing to "someOtherFile.mp3". Firefox and Chrome both exhibit this expected behaviour. IE9 does not.

Actual behaviour: In IE9, the audio tag has only 1 <source> child element.

Additional notes: If you remove the conditional code for IE, you get an error "Unexpected call to method or property access." which is still not the expected behaviour.

Can you run this test case and confirm that there is only one source elem?

When I run the test case at http://jsfiddle.net/rwaldron/J5nPR/1/ I get 2 source elements.

What about http://jsfiddle.net/timmywil/J5nPR/3/? It may be that the tag wasn't closed. However, that is not a problem in other browsers that support html5 tags.

Sarcasm doesn't translate well in tickets...

I wasn't being sarcastic. I'm asking if $('<source>') is valid versus $('<source/>')

comment:7 Changed 12 years ago by timmywil

Not closing the tag is preferred in html5, so people do <input> instead of <input/>. I'm wondering if this should be supported if it is not already.

Oh, you were referring to yourself. :) And apparently it is supported. Adding attributes forces the use of innerhtml, which ie9 may or may not support correctly. <o></o>
