jQuery doesn't support xpath, only css selectors.

well, it still worked in 1.2.6. I guess, it was a legacy feature left from 1.1.2 then ( http://docs.jquery.com/DOM/Traversing/Selectors).

Well, I guess, it was left in 1.2 for backwards compatibility but offically it wasn't supported. Now it's definitely left out of 1.3.

I've just regitered and I can't close it but there seems to be a two year old open ticket on a similar issue:  http://dev.jquery.com/ticket/1364

Btw. if you really need it you can modify the jQuery.expr.match.ATTR regex but I think it's much cleaner if you remove the @ signs from your code.
