Reported by: heyyeah Owned by:

Component: selector Version: 1.5
Keywords: Cc: msie
Blocked by: Blocking:


IE7 and IE8 can't find items using jQuery("script:contains('text')") JSFiddle example http://jsfiddle.net/heyyeah/rxCPx/4/

Result is "Script:contains('flag').length: 2" in Firefox 3.6, Chrome beta 9, Safari 5.03 and 0 in IE. (2 is correct as it the flag is found in the test HTML and javascript). Also errors in previous versions of jQuery.

Thanks for your time and interest in helping out the jQuery project. While we realise this issue is irksome, we cannot advocate or support this type of querying against script tags. As the volume on this ticket indicates (and I can back up with several years of support experience), querying a script by its "text content" is not at all a common or advisable decision.
