attribute selector not working in IE6 in jQuery 1.0.3

Using this selector to find null links in my #nav container:

$("#nav a[@href='#']")

This works fine for all tested browsers using the 2006-08-31 (rev 249) release of jQuery.

In the 1.0.3 release however, IE selects zero elements. Firefox 1.5 works correctly still.

This is caused by IE messing with the attribute value when using getAttribute on the a tag's href attribute. Instead please use:

$("#nav a[@href$='#'");

See for more info on this selector.
