Using jQuery, how can I create a div with an attribute of: "data-rel-xyz"?

This does not work:

$('<div/>', {
    data-rel-xyz: '555',
    xyz: '123'
}).appendTo('body');

Open in new window

You need to enclose the attribute title (the dash breaks the name otherwise) e.g.

'data-rel-xyz' : '555',
