Thanks for taking the time to try to help out the jQuery project, but this is not a valid bug. As is clearly stated in the selector documentation: "'If you wish to use any of the meta-characters ( such as !"#$%&'()*+,./:;<=>?@[\]`{|}~ ) as a literal part of a name, you must escape the character with two backslashes:"

As you can see, once the selector is escaped, it works fine.  http://jsfiddle.net/j84KA/1/
