Text disappears when element is removed with innerHTML

When you remove an element by innerHTML='' it's possible to re-append the element to the document. In Explorer Windows, though, the text goes missing.

Explorer Mac loses track of the element when it's been removed. So in this browser elements don't stay in hyperspace after they've been emptied from the innerHTML.
