Pseudoelements :last-of-type and :first-of-type broken in certain contexts.

Reported by: Emmett Owned by: john
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.4
Component: selector Version: 1.3.2
Keywords: psuedoelement Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

With markup:

<table id="mytable">
        <tr class="one">
        <tr class="two">

This works properly:

$("#mytable tbody > tr:last-of-type");  // [ tr.two ]

But this will return all the tr nodes:

$("tbody >tr:last-of-type", "#mytable"); // [, tr.two ]

So will this:

$("#mytable tbody").children("tr:last-of-type"); // [, tr.two ]

:last-child works in all of these cases.

:first-of-type exhibits the exact same broken behaviour.

There is no selector :last-of-type, it's :last or :first

jQuery doesn't support a :last-of-type selector across browsers, it's not in the API documentation. The selector may work if the browser supports querySelectorAll but it's not in Sizzle.

Actually, Resig removed support for this along with a host of other selectors that *were* in jQuery in the past. I don't know why people with bug-moderation privileges wouldn't know about this.
