:contains() edge case throwing an error
|Reported by:||Motty||Owned by:||timmywil|
As I said, this is probably an edge case but this error doesn't occur in jQuery versions prior to 1.8.
When I use the contains selector to try and target an element containing a position selector text like this:
I get an error:
Uncaught Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: :contains(" jquery-1.8.0.js:4512
Here is a demo which works fine in older versions of jQuery.
