IE8, HTML5 Elements and getElement problem

Reported by elado | October 23rd, 2010 @ 12:13 PM | in 1.3.1 (closed)

With this HTML:

<div id="page">
        <h1><a href="#x">Hi</a></h1>
            <a href="#x">1</a>
            <a href="#x">2</a>

This piece of code returns the element on all browsers except IE8:

$("page").getElement("header nav")

However, this works even on IE8:


And also these:

$("page").getElement("h1 a")


The only difference is the use of HTML5 elements.
