Well here's a fine how-do-ya-do. I'm using the ConventionController from MVCContrib which means I have controls with IDs like dto.JobName and dto.OrderedDate.

Problem is, I can't get at these things by ID in jQuery anymore. "#dto.JobName" in jQuery means (if my memory of CSS serves) select all elements with an ID of dto and a CSS class of JobName. Even if that's wrong, it doesn't matter much. The end result is $( "#dto.JobName" ) returns a useless object.

Current workaround is to select by name. Like so: $( "input[name='dto.JobName']" ) or $( "select[name='dto.JobTypes'] ).
