There is a regression linked to changes made in Sizzle.getText. getText should make the difference between unbreakable space and whitespace.

This was working with jQuery 1.6.4.

Here are the commits fixing this issue https://github.com/jquery/sizzle/pull/91/commits

In IE7 with jQuery 1.6.4, using getText on an element having an unbreakable space (   ) would return a string containing an unbreakable space (code 160). With jQuery 1.7.1, the same getText method replaces   by a regular whitespace (code 32).

The reason is the Sizzle.getText method is using now innerText instead of nodeValue.

You can run this on IE and switch from jQuery 1.6.4 to 1.7.1 to see the different character code that is returned for the unbreakable space

Another result of the 1.7 Sizzle.getText() change for oldIE.

This no longer applies as we no longer use innerText.
