Problem with space-separated attribute selector

Reported by: anonymous Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone: 1.next
Component: selector Version: 1.6.1

When using the $ selector for a single attribute, like : $("span[myAttribute1='data']"), it works. when attempting a 2 attribute selector, like so: $("span[myAttribute1='data'][myAttribute2='data2']") it also works.

However, when trying the same selector, with a space between the 2 attributes, it does not find the nodes. $("span[myAttribute1='data'] [myAttribute2='data2']")

i think that the space are used to identify the nested elements...

for example:

$("span[myAttribute1='data'].myspan") and $("span[myAttribute1='data'] .myspan") are different...


  • the second search any elements into "span[myAttribute1='data']" with class "myspan";
  • the first search any "span[myAttribute1='data']" with class "myspan".

it shouldn't be an error...i think...
