I'm trying to get a UL list into an array so i can put it into different form fields

HTML Code:
<ul id="AddressInfo">
      <li> 123 Main St. </li>
      <li> Brooklyn </li>
      <li> 11214 </li>
i tried doing this
$(".myUL").click(function () {

// $('#mytext').val($(this).text());

var getMyUL
getMyUL = $(this).text();

var arr = getMyUL.split(' ');


and the above doesn't work in IE :/

but it just way to unstable.. i was reading Jquery has toArray but not sure how to do it. I'm a php developer so i'm thinking how to do it in php lol
