I am evaluating jQuery for my company. I found issue where parent child selector does not work for table. I placed table with class bold and have 6 rows with some data and I want to change background color of odd rows. Syntax I used is as below.

 $('table.bold > tr:odd').css("background-color", "#bbbbff");

I tested this in chrome and IE 9.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project by writing a bug report.

This isn't a bug in jQuery. Your selector must take into account that browsers may automatically insert a tbody element into your table. Check
