Parses a string into an array of DOM nodes, optionally using a context within the document whilst retaining any user scripts present when required.

In the example below when we press the button the first time we parse some well formed HTML to the division with an id of 'div19' and then print out the DOM nodes.



$(function(){
  $('#btn23').one('click', function(){
    // Add some HTML
    parsedHtml = $.parseHTML( "Sentence has <strong>strongly typed text</strong> in it.<br />" ); 
    $('#div19').append(parsedHtml);
    // Append parsed HTML node names
    $.each( parsedHtml, function( i, el ) {
      $('#div19').append( el.nodeName + "<br />" );
    });
  });
});
