Attribute filtering does not work for style attribute

Reported by: bgrinstead Owned by: john
Priority: major Milestone: 1.3.2
Component: selector Version: 1.3.1
Keywords: selector attribute filter Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

I noticed that jQuery was not selecting elements when attempting to filter based on the style attribute. It works fine for others, like 'name', just not 'style'.

Here is an example:

    <span style="font-weight:bold;">This is bold</span>
    <span style="font-style:italic;">This is italic</span>
    <span style="text-decoration:underline;">This is underlined</span>
    <span name="thisworks">This IS selected by the attribute filter</span>

    <script type="text/javascript">
    $(function() {

attribute does not return a string. You would need to match the
css property, so the attribute selector syntax isn't the droid you're looking for. I think there is a plugin floating around that adds
to the selector syntax but I couldn't find it. This plugin would seem to do the job as well, but with a different syntax:

I should say the

*property*, see #3399 for more discussion.

I'm going to reopen this because it looks like it might be a regression due to the integration of Sizzle.
