1.4 throws exception when selecting custom tag in IE

I've an HTML page with custom tags in it that I need to get the .html() of. The following works in IE using 1.3.2, but in 1.4 gives a "Exception thrown and not caught" error. Using the 1.3 compat file doesn't make a difference either.

(If there's a better way to do what I'm trying to do please feel free to let me know!)

<!DOCTYPE HTML internal "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "">

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<script language="javascript" src=""></script>
<script language="javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
<mycustomtag:default>custom tag</mycustomtag:default>

If the selector is "mycustomtag\\\\:default", which is what I think you meant, it works.
