nth-child error on google chrome

Blocked by: Blocking:

nth-child nested selector doesn't seem to work on chrome. Instead of opening "openLi"(openLi is an integer) element of the DOM, it opens the "opelLi+2" element, even if the alert of ".vertical-menu > li:nth-child("+openLi+") > ul").show()" shows its correctness. This script works perfectly on IE7,IE8,FIREFOX..

This is the script code:

$(function() {
	var openLi = $.cookie("open-menu-item");
	if(openLi != null) {
		$(".vertical-menu > li:nth-child("+openLi+") > ul").show();

Html code passed w3 validation..

Using "eq" instead of "nth-child" with "openLi - 1" will work.

find that this is working in chrome, however the nth-last-child still gives me issues.
