visible "t" character in upper left corner during support.js init

Reported by: Owned by: rwaldron
Priority: high Milestone: 1.6.3
Component: support Version: 1.6.1

Ever since jQuery 1.4.3 release, there's been the following line

in support.js:

div.innerHTML = "<table><tr><td style='padding:0;display:none'></td><td>t</td></tr></table>";

Does the visible t character have a specific purpose for the tests? I'm implementing

a mobile html5 offline app and when the app gets reloaded, it shows the

character on the screen, causing minor annoyance

I thought we had this fixed in an earlier release? What changed?

We're not seeing this on our end. Can you provide a test case or more specifics regarding the browser?

I've seen this behaviour with webkit (Safari 5, Chrome, iOS 4.3.x) but it's very rare and I barely get to see the character before it vanishes.

No proper test case in hand atm, I've seen this on lots of pages that generate all

html/css code dynamically after $(document).ready and json loads.

I've disabled the 't' character from my own builds for now. Can you confirm that the character isn't a typo?

Is this still an issue?

Yes, could someone please confirm that <td>t</td> isn't just a typo?

No, it's not a typo. The comments in the source explain it's existence, though I think we can use a non-breaking-space to ensure the td doesn't collapse

Merge pull request #444 from rwldrn/9634
