Problem with .index method (Miscellaneous > DOM Element Methods), http://api.jquery.com/index/

Here's a scenario that worked in 1.3.2 but does not in version 1.4.2:

var fruits=["apple","orange","pear"]; var i = $(fruits).index("pear"); alert(i);

In version 1.3.2 the value of i is 2. In version 1.4.2 the value is -1

a non jquery alternative is indexOf BUT IE6 doesn't support it

I don't think we support wrapping an array of strings in a jQuery object and then applying jQuery methods on that. It may have worked in the past by chance.
