1.3b1: (Sizzle) Selectors containing a dot character in an attribute filter value do not work

Reported by: cbeyls Owned by: john
Priority: critical Milestone: 1.3
Component: selector Version: 1.2.6

Let's say we have this link in an HTML document:

<a href="">Google</a>

This selector works - returns 1 element:


This selector does NOT work in 1.3b1 because it contains a dot "." in the attribute filter value - returns no element:


The same thing occurs for all attribute filters: ^= and *= and $= and =.

There must be a problem with a regular expression in Sizzle.
