Read the second paragraph on http://api.jquery.com/category/selectors/ and you'll see that you need to escape the = metacharacter with two backslashes. That should fix your problem.

As confirmed by both the documentation at http://api.jquery.com/category/selectors/ and personal tests across FireFox 3.6.2 , IE 8, Chrome and Safari, you do need to escape the "=" characters in the above ticket in order for the behaviour to work as expected.

Closing as it no longer requires a resolution.
