This won’t work in browsers that don’t support Array#forEach, which rules out IE < 9. :'(

@mathiasbynens If you want older browsers support, there's the second file in this gist

@mathiasbynens

Ah, duh.

Perhaps give these files more obvious file names than a.js and b.js? :D And perhaps make it so that the b.js is the first file to appear. Or you could add a README.md to the gist to prevent confusing n00bs like me. How about that?

I actually named them a.js and b.js so that the ES5 one will appear first. After all, the ES5 version is clearly the more awesome one.
The README file idea is sound, I'll get right to it.

Edit: Actually, a file isn't necessary. Editing the comment at the top should suffice.

I added support for li value attributes: https://gist.github.com/1896721

What's the license for these code snippets?
