These output:





The html is as follows (taken from the developer tools of chrome):

<tr class="bucketRow"> <td> <input type="text" name="bucket_to[0]" value=""></td> <td class="bucketValueTD"><= <input type="text" name="bucket_from[0][]" value=""> <input type="button" class="bucket_add_row" value="add value"> </td> </tr>


(note: I put the alerts into a click of the button.)

As far as I understand, the first two alerts ABSOLUTELY should show the same thing.

The third one should as well, but it is a little less obvious, although still fairly obvious.

If you insist.

The bug referenced appears to refer to the attribute existing, while my bug expands the issue to matching attributes using specific selectors.

You're right, it's not a dup, I think it's invalid.

~= is the "contains word" selector; input[name~="from"] shouldn't match anything because there is no *space-delimited* string from in the markup.

|= is the "contains prefix" selector; input[name|="bucket_from"] shouldn't match anything because there is no name that is either exclusively that string or prefix that string *followed by a dash*.

It's best to start on the forum with questions like this and only file a bug once you've got some consensus that it's really a bug.

I see now.

I misunderstood the use of those 2 functions.

Next time I will query the forum before submitting a bug.

Sorry about the false report, and thanks for the reply.
