Consider adding :link to Sizzle

Using selectors of the type [attrname] to select elements based on the existence of an attribute seems to have broken in IE6 and IE7 with jQuery 1.7. The results include elements even without the attribute.

I've created a fiddle to show the problem:

This fails for IE6 and IE7 with jQuery 1.7, but works as expected with jQuery 1.6.4 and earlier versions.

It's strange that this doesn't seem to be working the same way in 1.7. We'll look into this for 1.7.2. http://jsfiddle.net/timmywil/wuRsG/11/

What is the use case for this? We're inclined to close it wontfix but would like to hear if there are really useful cases we're missing.

I am using the type of selector primarily for selecting <a> elements that have href attributes, similar to using :link vs. just a in CSS selectors.

Can you suggest an alternative selector for this, or would I need to add markup?
