Insert node: IE bug or wrong code?


A

Alvaro G. Vicario

The code below inserts a <span> tag around the image. It works fine in
Firefox or Opera, but has a weird effect in Internet Explorer: browser
keeps loading the image forever... Even though the picture *is* displayed,
status bar and throbber won't stop showing activity. Apart from that,
scripts work even in IE.

Is it an IE bug or is there something wrong with my code? I've googled
about it but couldn't find the right keywords...

The snippet comes from a larger function that surrounds a given node
(possibly with child nodes) with a new node. So if I have:

<p>Foo <strong>bar</strong></p>

I'd call surroundWithNewNode(p, 'div') and get:

<div><p>Foo <strong>bar</strong></p></div>

It's annoying that I can't use it against <img> tags :(

Not sure if this will help, but try closing the IMG element.

It won't help.

That is invalid HTML and will result in error-correction taking place.
Since IE doesn't support xHTML in *any* form, whether it is valid xHTML
or not is irrelevant in IE.
It might help... it might not... just a suggestion :eek:)

It won't help.

Did you try to make this after the document is loaded? Something like
this. It works fine
for me.
