find selector doesn't work any more with an expando containing a coma

This is the kind of use case I have on my application:

It seems that div.find('span[data-expando="AA,BB"]') returns nothing in the 1.8 (it works with the 1.7 version).

As you can see in the test, it also works in the 1.8, without the coma.

Additionally, please note that $('span[data-expando="AA,BB"]') returns results.

Thanks for your work !

From our documentation:

If you wish to use any of the meta-characters ( such as !"#$%&'()*+,./:;<=>?@[\\]^`{|}~ ) as a literal part of a name, you must escape the character with two backslashes: \\\\

Applying this to your selector results in a test case that works fine:

ok, I missed that point in the documentation.

I'll change my code accordingly.

Thanks a lot.
