missing special char "?" in "Special characters in selectors" on selectors page

documentation typo:


on bottom of just beneath "The full list of characters that need to be escaped: "

the question mark is missing.

also there seems to be a slight inconsistency...


$("[id='http\\:\\/\\/domain\\.net\\/index\\.php?var\\=3']") (specific attribute, plain ?)

$("[id='http\\:\\/\\/domain\\.net\\/index\\.php\\?var\\=3']") (specific attribute, escaped ?)

$("#http\\:\\/\\/domain\\.net\\/index\\.php\\?var\\=3") (escaped ?)


$("#http\\:\\/\\/domain\\.net\\/index\\.php?var\\=3") (plain ?)

You can't use that as an ID or you do need to escape chars.

Uhhhh. Wow. You may want to consider changing up your IDs a little bit.
