Problem with ID reference if ID has period

I have an image with the id of "img1.1".

I cannot reference this image with $("#img1.1"), but document.getElementById("img1.1") works. Am I missing something?

Is it something to do with jQuery thinking that ".1" means a class?

That's correct. In 1.1.3 you can now do: $("#img1\\\\.1") to escape the special character.
