"I made a form using the jquery mobile library, and am having an issue with the submit button on ie8 and ie9, which is also present on the sample website:
The issue is clicking on the the actual text that says Submit does not submit the form. Is there a way around this? Seems the span that is added by jquery just doesn't respond to the click."
Thanks for reporting this Todd. Looking forward to this getting fixed.
Fixes #2629, fixes #2628 — Replacing ‘background: transparent’ with #…
…fff, rgba(255,255,255,0), and an opacity filter solves this.
Confirmed that it was fixed. Thanks!
