How do I process XML using JQuery in Internet Explorer?

I am experiencing a problem processing a simple xml document using jquery in internet explorer. The idea is to parse selected elements off of the xml document and then append to the DOM. I have it working correctly in Firefox 2, but Internet Explorer 6 SP 2 is raining on my parade. Please see code snippet below for guidance. Thanks in advance.

I actually figured this out a little while back, but you hit on the head. IE didn't like the application/javascript tag. Thanks.
