[jQuery] Proposed selector patch: select by name
The name property is associated with every (or nearly every? are
there exceptions?) DOM element. In my code I make extensive use of the
name property, and it has been extremely useful to refer to specific elements
directly by their name property rather than id or class.
When used repeatedly, it is much cleaner (and I suspect faster, though
I haven't benchmarked it) than the equivalent '[@name=]' selector.
I would submit this as a plugin, but I don't believe this fundamental
of a change is possible via a plugin.
I've used the '%' character for lack of something more appropriate,
though this is somewhat arbitrary.
