Keywords: selector Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:


I have an element with id 'd+tile', it is not possible to select that element using $('#d\\\\+title'). I am using jquery 1.3.

html : <span id="d+title">something</span>

jquery : $('#d\\\\+title') simply returns null set.

this was working in jquery 1.2.6. but not in 1.3.

The chunker erroneously splits the selector by the plus sign.

Btw, John, if you're fixing this there's another nice chunker issue in #3778 in the third comment :)

ID and NAME tokens must begin with a letter ([A-Za-z]) and may be followed by any number of letters, digits ([0-9]), hyphens ("-"), underscores ("_"), colons (":"), and periods (".").
