$.fn.add cannot add 'select' element to a set op option elements

$('option').add('#s') does not work correctly when #s is a select element. This has been tested in ie8 and firefox 3.6 See demo below.

This hurts JQuery UI, because jquery.ui.widget.js (line18) use the following code to find loop through an element and all it's children.

$( "*", this ).add( this ).each(function() {...}

	$('#msg1').text('length='+ $('option').add($('#s')[0]).length);
	$('#msg2').text('length='+ $('option').add($('#d')[0]).length);
	$('#msg3').text('length='+ $('span').add($('#d')).length);

	<select name="s" id="s">
		<option value="1">One</option>
		<option value="2">Two</option>
	<div id="d">
		<span style="background-color:blue">Text</span>

	<div id="msg1"></div>
	<div id="msg2"></div>

This appears to be working fine (it's a replication of your original test case):

If you are able to supply further information or additional test cases we would be more than happy to re-investigate the issue mentioned.

The first "lenght=2" should be "lenght=3". It selects two option elements and tries to add a select (id=s) to the result.




Should generate a result of the same length. The only difference is adding a select instead of a div.

Note that $('option').add($('#s')) works fine (without the [0]) adding a jQuery object instead of a DOM element. The doumentation of add has an example adding a DOM element.
