Selector of ancestor/descendant is broken in IE 5.5

Reported by: vdboor Owned by:
Priority: trivial Milestone: 1.3
Component: selector Version: 1.2.6
Keywords: Cc: vdboor, flesler
Blocked by: Blocking:

In IE 5.5 the following returns 0 results:

alert( $("#filterSelectionbar li.drop").length )

On the other hand, the following statement does return results:

alert( $("#filterSelectionbar").find("li.drop").length )

While I know IE 5.5 isn't officially supported, I hope this can still be fixed because it seams like a small bug.

Any space separated selector fails ?

Can you provide a test case that shows the 'pattern' of failure ?

I just noticed the ">" token is not visible in the ticket description. The first code line should have been:

alert( $("#filterSelectionbar > li.drop").length )

Sadly I don't have IE 5.5 to test. I'll see what I can do.

vdboor, can you see if this problem still exists in IE 5.5 under jQuery 1.3? Since the selector engine changed completely it may have gone away. Hopfully not replaced by dozens of other bugs.

I'll close this since the selector engine has been significantly changed.
