jQuery: Firefox and Chrome Render Content Inside <noscript> Differently

Firefox renders this the way I want it to but Google Chrome uses entity encoding.  How can the code be modified to work correctly in Google Chrome?
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Demo</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function() {
 var homeData = $('noscript#homePage').html();
 $('body').html(homeData);
 alert(homeData);
});

</script>

</head>
<body>

<noscript id="homePage">
<h1>Hello World</h1>
</noscript>

</body>
</html>

Read the value in as text() and then set it out as html():

$(document).ready(function() {
     var homeData = $('noscript#homePage').text();
     $('body').html(homeData);
     alert(homeData);
});

That gets rid of the HTML tags altogether!  I want all the HTML code, not just the text.

The text() method works OK for me, but your problem/issue does seem to be a bug/feature within Chrome - effectively the <noscript> tag only becomes fully available if you have javascript disabled - that's exactly what it's designed for!

It's not really clear from your code what you are trying to achieve - it seems that when JS is enabled you are trying to read the content designed specifically for when JS is disabled!! Can't for the life of me figure out why you would ever need to do this. It makes no sense! It seems that you are trying to show certain content whether JS is enabled or disabled so why not just show it normally??

Here's a few pages that may help explain things a bit more:

This works for me:
 var homeData = $('<textarea/>').html($('noscript#homePage').html()).val();
