Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: form :input[text|select|checkbox] [Break On This Error]

I thought it may be poor practice for me to use "select" in there too since "select" is not a type of the "input" family so i tried taking it out ("form :input[text|checkbox]") but that didn't work either and it did in older versions.

Actually, you've uncovered a bug in jQuery 1.7.2 (specifically, the included version of Sizzle): http://jsfiddle.net/4VGaX/2/

That selector syntax is invalid, and we're now throwing an exception when we encounter it.
