In IE, The selector for multiple inputs is not working whereas in firefox it is. Below is the html.

<td><input id="contactInfo.shippingAddress.city" name="contactInfo.shippingAddress.city" onchange="needToConfirm = true;" type="text" value="city" maxlength="100"/></td>

If selector is written as $("*[id='contactInfo

It doesn't work

But if written as $("*[id='contactInfo.shippingAddress']").val(""); - it works..

But jquery documentation says, periods must be escaped with

In the above test case, it's not necessary to escape the ID in order to create a selector that can select all of the relevant elements desired. Although a period is present, this can be easily handled using a more advanced selector such as this: http://jsfiddle.net/65DKY/1/

As you can see, this handles multiple elements without any problem.

Just to confirm as well: Using the correct selector (as provided above) you *can* still escape the periods if needed without any loss in functionality.


Closing as this should be resolved now.
