If you use jQuery Mobile with an IPv6 address in the URL, e.g.


then it won't work at all because URL parsing fails. I fixed the hostname part of the urlParseRE to make it work.

At first disallow [ and ] in hostnames:
Then add the special IPv6 case as an alternative:

Please review.

Thank you and best regards


Based on my reading here: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3986.txt I made alterations to prevent matching on the reserved characters described in section 3.2.2 for the host portion.


Any review here is appreciated, and if you feel particularly energetic we'd love some additions to the test suite if you spot issues :D
