I don't know the cause of the problem, but I can tell you that the
approach you are taking is unnecessarily complicated, and not making
full use of what jQuery has to offer.  To wit:

1) You don't need to loop through all of the links once they're
created.  Use jQuery's selectors to do it for you. aka:

 $("#outer_div_id").find("a").each(function() {
   // Code goes here

Alternatively, you could set a style class for all of the links you
create, and iterate through them like this::


2) Don't use bind(), use click(), aka:

$(element).click(function() {
   // Code

3) Don't use loadXMLDoc(), use jQuery's $.get() function or similar.

You might want to spend some time brushing up on all that can be done
with jQuery, by looking at the "API Reference" section under, as well as
