populating hidden form fields in IE6

Hi there,

I've discovered what I believe is a jQuery bug.

On one of our pages we inject HTML which includes some hidden form elements (type=hidden). These are then populated from another field on the page.

When I try to locate these form fields with a standard selector $('#myform-wrapper #hidden_field1') they come up as 'undefined' in IE6, but work just fine in other browsers. I've put a work around in place by doing a loop as follows

$.each($('#myform-wrapper input:hidden'), function(){

if ($(this).attr('id') == 'myid') {

// do my stuff.



This is obviously not ideal, the selector should really work here.
