This is because we use the #2 iFlag in jQuery.attr for getAttribute so we retrieve a raw href identical to user input rather than an href domain-ified or protocol-ified by IE. Unfortunately, that means all anchors have href's in IE6/7 for selectors. It's a tradeoff, but I think the current behavior is the best.
