Hi Experts,

I have got this code working in all browsers inc ie9 - except for ie8.

Its been driving me mad for over 3 hours now so thought I'd get an extra set of eyes on it.

Please Help

Jquery

if ($('#selected-breeds').children(".tag").length === 0) {
        $('#selected-breeds').hide();
    }

    $('#available-breeds :checkbox').click(function () {
        function selectedBreedFade() {
            if (!$('#selected-breeds').find('a').length) {
                $('#selected-breeds').fadeOut('fast');
            } else {
                $('#selected-breeds').fadeIn('fast');
            }

        }


        if ($(this).is(':checked')) {
            var checkedBreed = $(this).parent().next('td').find('label').text();
            $('<a class="tag">&times; <span>'+checkedBreed+'</span>').appendTo('#selected-breeds');
            selectedBreedFade();
        } else {
            var uncheckedBreed = $(this).parent().next('td').find('label').text();
            $('#selected-breeds').find('.tag span:contains(' + uncheckedBreed + ')').parent().fadeOut('fast').remove();
            selectedBreedFade();
        }

        $('#selected-breeds .tag').click(function () {
            var removedBreed = $(this).find('span').text();
            $(this).fadeOut('fast').remove();
            $('#available-breeds').find('label:contains(' + removedBreed + ')').parent().prev('td').find(':checkbox').attr('checked', false);
            selectedBreedFade()
        });

        $('#button-reset-search').click(function () {
            $('#selected-breeds').fadeOut();
            $('#selected-breeds').find('.tag').remove();
            $('#available-breeds :checkbox').prop('checked', false);
        });

    });

It seems to be choking on the line where you add the <a> to selected-breeds.

Try this instead
        // ... to line 18
        if ($(this).is(':checked')) {
            var checkedBreed = $(this).parent().next('td').find('label').text();
            // USE THIS LINE
            $('#selected-breeds').append($('<a/>').addClass('tag').html('&times; <span>'+checkedBreed+'</span>'));
             // INSTEAD OF THIS ONE
             // $('<a class="tag">&times; <span>'+checkedBreed+'</span>').appendTo('#selected-breeds');
            selectedBreedFade();
        } else {
            var uncheckedBreed = $(this).parent().next('td').find('label').text();
            $('#selected-breeds').find('.tag span:contains(' + uncheckedBreed + ')').parent().fadeOut('fast').remove();
            selectedBreedFade();
        }
        // .....

Are you using jquery 2.x?  That will not support ie8.  You have to use 1.1x
