.html() not decoding html elements

I have a string that has some encoded html characters...
str = '<br />'

Open in new window

And I'm using jQuery to fill an elements' html with that string...
$('#element').html(str);

Open in new window

But when I view it in the browser I get "<br />" instead of a line break. I thought html() should decode everything into html formatting?
