The following code fragment fails in IE7. The new tab appears to add correctly, but when I click on the tab, IE gives the error:

A Runtime Error has occurred
Line: 2
Error: Object expected

1 $("#tabs").tabs({
2   load : function() { alert($("#message").text()); }
3 });
5 $("#tabs").add("add", "blank.html", "Test Tab", 1);

Does "blank.html" exist?

Yes it does. It should be in the zip file. It is essentially an empty html file containing a reference to the parent's jquery object. In my application, cross-site scripting is not an issue (hence the sharing of the object).

You're loading a page from the same path, which means that it's from the same domain, so there is no cross-site scripting occurring. This isn't even cross-window scripting, which is what you're thinking of. There's absolutely no reason to do $ = parent.$ since the code is on the same page. I'm not even sure what you're trying to accomplish with this test case.
