[readonly="true"] for IE6 / [readonly=""] for Firefox

Hi guys

If you set some Input-TD's of a table to readonly with

$('tr>td:nth-child(2n) :text').attr('readonly', 'readonly')

jQuery 1.3.2 writes in the DOM

FF: <input id="A1" type="text" value="90" readonly=""/>

IE6: <INPUT id="A1" readOnly=True jQuery1236243200750=2>

Therefore, when trying to retrieve with attribute selector, you have to use [readonly=""] in Firefox and [readonly="true"] in IE6...

Would be nice if [readonly="true"] would work in both browsers.

Thanks guys and keep up your supercool&great work!

readonly="readonly" is the valid usage.
