    I was just doing some final pre-release testing on our new hosted forms service, and found this problem in IE8!

    A quick search found your article instantly, and the solution worked almost as quickly!

    Thanks again.

    I found a similar issue with ‘prepend’ and ‘append’ – I wanted to wrap the whole internal contents of a div and thought I’d try prepending an opening tag, the append the closing tag, but it didn’t work as the prepend also created the closing tag automatically (in firefox), so I have had to try something else.
