No option to prepend / append nested divs?

Hi jQuery team! Kudos for developing web's hottest library, and a question:

today I tried to prepend a div within a div. No luck. App[arently, jQuery doesn't allow to. do so.

Here's what I did:

.prepend('<div id="outer-div"><div id="inner-div"></div></div>')

Alas, only the outer div ended up prepended to the page.

Am I missing something or is jQuery currently lacking the ability to prepend nested elements? Wouldn't it be cool to have this?

Best regards,

Dimitri Vorontzov

Actually, correction, just to make it perfectly obvious:


Still no trace of that inner div though.

Damn, I'm not functioning porperly today. Had to fix it one more time:


However, still nothing has changed: the inner div is invisible, even though having the z-index of 999 and the color red it should be there.

Am I missing anything still?

OK, I think in this case I can safely say it was my error. However, in a practical situation I encountered today, I really didn't have anything visible in the inner div. Let me try to recreate that very situation and see what happens.

Give me a few mins.

Yep, I'm unable to recreate the issue, either. Now I know I must have made some kidn of coding mistake.

The issue is resolved for me, thank you.

No bug.
