IE and Chrome Converts all element having ID into variable

[Object Type] .

A sample Example is as follows:

alert(typeof abc);//returns undefined in firefox and object in IE and Chrome :(





<input id="abc" value="abca">



Please let me know ASAP.

In IE and Chrome Every element is available as a variable(named as its ID). Its A major issue.

This is not a jQuery problem, nor is it anything jQuery can control.
