Changes to <textartea> values not preserved by the jQuery clone function.

Component: manipulation Version: 1.6.1

Blocked by: Blocking:

Cloning a <div> containing a <textatea> in which textarea.val( ) has been changed results in a "cloned" copy with the textarea.val() equal to the original (static) value ...

This noted with jQuery 1.6 and it seems ALL CURRENT BROWSERS, Safari, Opera, Firefox 4 and Chrome .. Example can be supplied if contested. This seems similar to order reported issues but seems more consistent and wide ranging.

This is expected behavior. Data (attached with ''.data()'') and events do not include value. Value can be copied manually if needed.

Maybe be expected, but it's not at all intuitive. I would expect a clone to be an exact copy. Agree a work around is to set the values manually, however. I will make a note, but suggest you add an explanation to the documentation on .clone ( true ).
