Description Christopher Rogers 2007-10-11 08:43:11 PDT
I believe the summary says everything. I have tested this on Mac OS X 10.4 and Windows with the nightly build. Interestingly enough setting the innerHTML of an element to ' ' works.

I came across this bug using Prototype 1.6.0 RC0, which sets innerHTML to a blank string before inserting a new DOM node.

Test case passes on Firefox and Opera 9.22, but fails on a local debug build of WebKit r26376 with Safari 3 Public Beta v. 3.0.3 (522.12.1) on Mac OS X 10.4.10 (8R218).
