POS slector related bug

Reported by: balazs.endresz Owned by: john
Priority: major Milestone: 1.3
Component: selector Version: 1.2.6

Blocking: Blocked by:


$('li').not(':odd:first') fails:  http://groups.google.com/group/jquery-dev/browse_thread/thread/30ea94cfd730ecdb

because the POS regex matches the colon after :odd that would belong to :first. Then without the colon only first remains wich will wrongly match the TAG selector.


Also in the same regex \(?(\d*)\)? can cause problems, I guess. As in #3793 maybe this should be changed to: (?:\(?(\d*)\))?

Inserting a colon near the end of the POS regex will solve this if there aren't any other characters that can possibly follow the expression. (like maybe a ")" ?)

Changed the final selector portion to a positive lookahead, which resolved the final issue.  http://github.com/jeresig/sizzle/commit/0d00986ec0e07cf2b295649679b57bda4532f28b
