You need to escape the comma with \\\\ in the string.

BTW, a number alone is not a valid id, and a comma in an id is not valid either. But jQuery will allow you to include it by escaping with backslash.

ID and NAME tokens must begin with a letter ([A-Za-z]) and may be followed by any number of letters, digits ([0-9]), hyphens ("-"), underscores ("_"), colons (":"), and periods (".").
