jQuery selector "[value=foo]" doesn't work if value set on runtime

With jQuery 1.4.2/1.2.6 and others this will work (if "foo" typed by user on runtime):


But with 1.4.3 and higher this doesn't work.

Try it yourself:

The value attribute does not stay up-to-date with the current value. It is only responsible for setting the default or initial value. You are thinking of the value property, which cannot be used in a selection. You can do something like this instead: http://jsfiddle.net/timmywil/VwVhD/15/

Thx! Also, this will allow $('input[value=foo]') to work - http://jsfiddle.net/VwVhD/25/
