Selector in IE8 (anchor/id)

Reported by: Owned by: timmywil

Selectors like $("#test span") fails in IE8 when there's an element (in my case an anchor) with the same name as the id given.

It has to be run in editmode for some reason to produce the error, doing the same thing in a local file produces the error every time.

This works in jQuery 1.7.2 and fails in 1.8.2 & 1.9.1.

Best regards,

I'll take a look. This could be IE8's QSA.

Actually, this only happens in quirksmode. jsbin is not setting the doctype correctly.
