convert an XML jQuery Object to String
I have an uploaded xml file that I’m perusing using jQuery via
var $ts = $.parseXML(filecontents)
I have attempted to convert back to the original source when locating objects within the XML Document by utilising:
In chrome, this works absolutely fine and I get the output as it looks in the original document. In firefox, it reorders the attributes of elements alphabetically.
Since I’m hashing this output, I need it to be the same as the input. Is this possible to enforce at all, or am I better with a different method of walking through this xml document?

Use the XMLSerializer API instead:
var foo = $ts.find("Object").get(0); var serializer = new XMLSerializer(); var original = serializer.serializeToString(foo);
