I have this piece of code -

x = $('#country_select').find('option[text=Ireland]');

which finds the option for Ireland in the select with id 'country_select'.

It works in v1.3 and in 1.4.1, however does not work in 1.5.1

Cheers Jason

I added quotes to the attr value to make sure it was in compliance with the selector requirement.

We have :contains for this. Is it valid to check text as an attribute?

This is another property-vs-attribute conflict. The new behavior is correct and consistent, since there is no text *attribute* on the option element. Use the :contains() pseudo.
