Have you tried "*[id='myForm:myName']"? That ought to work, though it
wouldn't surprise me if it did not.
A colon is a valid character in ID attributes, so it should be
supported. Part of me thinks that the attribute selector approach (if
it works) would be sufficient -- but another part of me thinks we
should follow jQuery's lead here and just special-case the double-
escaped colon in all contexts.
(Out of curiosity, what happens when you try to target #myForm:myText
with a CSS selector? The use of the colon to denote pseudoclass would
seem to be a problem in CSS as well.)
