Ticket #9625 (closed enhancement: invalid)
Support full range of allowed IDs in HTML5
|Reported by:||ssp||Owned by:|
HTML5 seems to legalise all non-space characters for ID strings.
This creates a situation where you can have IDs which jQuery cannot match because its 'quickExpr' regular expression matches according to the more restrictive HTML4 standard.
See http://jsfiddle.net/2Zpn4/4/ for an example showing that document.getElementByID can return elements which JQuery cannot match.
