Selectors behave differently with comments tags on FF/IE

See test case. Basically, Firefox ignores the comments as a node in the DOM, and IE (all versions tested) seems to count the comments in the DOM.

I don't know if this behavior is intended...

IE returns comment nodes too when getElementsByTagName("*") is used. This is a bug in Sizzle.find

test case alerts 1 in IE 0 in all other browsers

test case 2 shows simple case where this becomes a problem for jQuery

Triaged as valid, need to fix the gEBTN in Sizzle.find as mentioned by jitter.
