Description

Probably it happens because jquery adds additional jQueryNNNNN.. attribute to input tags.

HTML source:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
  <title>Hello!</title>
  <script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-1.6.1.min.js"></script>

</head>
<body>

  <form id="form1" action="" method="post">
    <label><input type="radio" name="test" value="1"/> Test 1</label>
    <label><input type="radio" name="test" value="2"/> Test 2</label>
    <br/><br/>
    Value: <span id="val">?</span>
  </form>

  <script type="text/javascript">

  $(function()
  {
    $('input[name=test]').change(function()
    {

      $('#val').html($('#form1 input:radio:checked').val());

This works fine. There's no need for the return false: http://jsfiddle.net/timmywil/q3Jqu/.

I'm not sure what return false should/could do across browsers for a change event.

The change event occurs when a control loses the input focus and its value has been modified since gaining focus. This event is valid for INPUT, SELECT, and TEXTAREA. element.

So yeah, don't return false or event.preventDefault() on a change event.
