I have an input element
<label>	 <input name = 'inp'  value = 'AL'  
		   			type = 'checkbox' onClick='HC(this)'> AL </label> ";

Open in new window


and even handler
 function HC(chk)
 {

    tit  = tit + chk.parentNode.innerText + ', ';

Open in new window


Where I want to get the label content, for some reason it stopped working in IE
it is complaining that chk.parentNode is not an object. I would like to use Jquery
parent() function. but how to create jquery object out of chk ?
