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.
html and javascript

     <title>Address book</title>
     <script src="jquery.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
     <script type="application/javascript">
     $(function() {
         $('#update-target a').click(function() {
             $.ajax({
                 type: "GET",
                 url: "label.xml",
                 dataType: "text/xml",
                 success: function(xml) {
                     $(xml).find('label').each(function(){
                         var id_text = $(this).attr('id')
                         var name_text = $(this).find('name').text()
 
                         $('<li></li>')
                             .html(name_text + ' (' + id_text + ')')
                             .appendTo('#update-target ol');
                     }); //close each(
                 }
             }); //close $.ajax(

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