If Firefox does handle the spaces properly,it seems that Chrome (and certainly Safari and all other browsers with the same engine) fails when there are spaces. I guess normalizing the string so that p:nth-child( 4n + 8 ) becomes p:nth-child(4n+8) before sending it to document.querySelectorAll would allow to make it cross browser

WebKit bug. This patch will allow jQuery to handle this gracefully by falling back to Sizzle until they fix it.
