Selector [value=XXX] regress in 1.5.2

Reported by: grigorenko@… Owned by: grigorenko@…

Component: selector Version: 1.5.2

Selector "SELECT[name=FOO] option[value=BAR]" works in 1.4.4 and doesn't work in 1.5.2

In 1.5.2 there's error:

Uncaught Syntax error, unrecognized expression: [value=D:\Results\BDS2007\EXE\MitraMessageCenterApp.exe] k.errorjquery.js:16 k.filterjquery.js:16 kjquery.js:16 c.querySelectorAll.kjquery.js:16 d.fn.extend.findjquery.js:16 d.d.fn.d.initjquery.js:16 d.djquery.js:16 check_add:2222/:201 update:2222/:144 d.extend._Deferred.f.resolveWithjquery.js:16 vjquery.js:16 d.support.ajax.d.ajaxTransport.send.cjquery.js:16

I'm trying to append option to SELECT only if there isn't one there already:

function check_add(select_name, value) {
	if ($("SELECT[name=" + select_name + "] option[value=" + value + "]").length == 0) {
		$("SELECT[name=" + select_name + "]").append($("<option />").text(value || '').val(value || ''));

Using Chrome 10.0.648.205 under Windows XP.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project! Please provide a reduced test case on http://jsFiddle.net that reproduces the issue experienced to help us assess your ticket. Additionally, test against the jQuery (edge) version to ensure the issue still exists. I've created one here, but was unable to reproduce the issue described: http://jsfiddle.net/timmywil/CppFb/

Quotes around the value are mandatory: http://jsfiddle.net/timmywil/JKZ2t/8/

I got the same error. After add quotes to the value in selector, the error msg went away. Thanks, timmywil.

Forgot about quotes. Sorry, my mistake.
