jQuery selector fails on nested classes

Reported by fiann | February 10th, 2009 @ 05:13 AM | in 1.0 Release

Where an element with a certain class name is nested inside an ancestor element with the same class, the jQuery selector finds this correctly in the browser (tested in Firefox 3.0) but not in env.js.

For example:

<p id="example1">
  <span class="value">This is the value, which should 
    <span class="value">only appear once. </span></span>

The jQuery selector $(".value .value") finds only the inner node in the browser, but matches 2 nodes under env.js.

    thanks for finding this fiann. Hopefully the new build/test scripts will alleviate the general issues you had to change.

    I'm looking into the selector issue today.

    Hey fiann still working on this. If you still have issues loading env.js create a new ticket if possible. I'm digging into selector issues and there are several other issues that I'm hoping will resolve this if fixed.

    If you have time please retry your test case with the latest source and just post a thumbs up or thumbs down.

    Thanks again for finding this issue.
