This also affects attributes that have a . in the value eg: option="3.6" cannot be selected via jQuery('[option=3.6]')

  • Priority changed from undecided to low
  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Component changed from unfiled to selector

None of the selector in your test case are - and never were - valid selectors (except the TestThis).

That these worked in earlier versions of jQuery was actually a bug that got fixed in 1.5. This is clearly pointed out in the documentation, so that I don't need to repeat my self check this comment
