Dialog fails to recognize termination of self-closing div tag

Reported by: Flynn Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: ui.dialog Version: 1.7.2
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

If a self-closing div (i.e. "<div />") is used as the target of a dialog, the dialog will ignore the tag's termination (i.e. "/>") and include in the dialog content that follows after.

Here is an example where two click events are assigned to a link because the dialog fails to terminate and re-executes the jquery code:

<a id="linkAlert" href="#">View Alert</a>      
<div id="dialogTest" />

<script language="javascript">

Divs cannot be self-closing. This is invalid X/HTML.
