Hello Guys,

I'm having problem selecting an element with an id like this <li ="0f:Bactidol_Recorder.mp4">.

I tried using the function that escapes meta-characters with two backslashes below from this jquery link but still can't select the element


function jq(myid) { 
   return '#' + myid.replace(/(:|\.)/g,'\\$1');
