Careless Trident sniffing breaks IE9

Reported by gonchuki | August 31st, 2010 @ 03:43 PM | in 1.2.5

This one should go for the newly created 1.2.5 milestone (looks to me like a hotfix release)

on document.newElement there's some Trident sniffing on 1.2.4 that breaks IE9 as it now properly supports DOM element creation.
I propose either patching 1.2.4 with the code that is now part of 1.3 which does not use sniffing at all, or if that's not possible because of other dependencies (sorry, haven't been following -core closely) then extend the sniffing to detect IE9 (Trident 7 maybe?) and limit the condition on that statement.

Makes sense? IE9 is close to ship beta, we shouldn't ignore its existence any more.
