just to be exceptionally clear, this bug affects selecting any of the inline style, not just color. using the style attribute at all in the selector doesn't work. :)

This is only an issue in IE. All other browsers work fine. Live test case

That said, trying to select elements based on inline styles is an exceedingly horrible idea. You should almost certainly be using class names instead.

I've updated the text case to show it also not working in Firefox and Safari. the problem is specific to the .find() method, as opposed to using jQuery(). Updated test case at: http://jsfiddle.net/qJdXW/1/

I'm trying to use jQuery to help clean up Word content that has been pasted into a tinymce editor. I need to be able to select based on inline styles, since the HTML it's inserting doesn't have classnames.
