jquery using csv to produce list with unique href per item

Hi,
I'm trying to adapt a code snippet I had gotten from here.

What I need to achieve is to produce a ul list with data in each li item and a unique href for each item using csv data on the site.

Here's what I have
<section class="tag"><strong>TAGGED IN: </strong><ul><span>item1,nextItems2,anotherItems3</span></ul>


Here's what need to be produced
<section class="tag">
<strong>TAGGED IN: </strong>
<ul>
<li><a href="SameDomainURL/search-results.html?item1">item1</a></li>
<li><a href="SameDomainURL/search-results.html?nextItems2">nextItems2</a></li>
<li><a href="SameDomainURL/search-results.html?anotherItems3">anotherItems3</a></li>
</ul>

Here's the code I've tried to append but doesn't quite work:
$('.tag span').each(function(){
	var currentList = $(this);
	var itemsArray = currentList.text().split(",");
	//Loop through the array and add a li a href element
	$.each(itemsArray , function(index, value) { 
		var newLI = $("<li>").html($("<a>").html(value).attr('href', '/site-search-results.html?category=').html(value));
		currentList.append(newLI);
	});
});

Open in new window


What it isn't doing but I need it to is:
1. strip the original csv data just leaving the formatted data.
2. Add the item value as unique value per item to the url href after the ?

Help appreciated...Christmas is nearly here! and I need to finish!
Regards
Lee

Sorted it. Slightly different approach

	var propCatList = $('.tag ul').text();
	itemsArray = propCatList.split(",");
	$('.tag ul').html('');
	$('.tag ul').append('');
	$.each(itemsArray , function(index, value) { 
	$('.tag ul').append('<li><a href="/site-search-results.html?category='+ value +'"><span>' + value + '</span></a></li>');
	});
