Attribute Not Equal Selector [name!="value"]

Select elements that either don't have the specified attribute, or do have the specified attribute but not with a certain value.

.attributeNotEqual(attribute, value)

attribute StringAn attribute name.
value StringAn attribute value. Can be either a valid identifier or a quoted string.

This selector is equivalent to :not([attr='value']).

Finds all inputs that don't have the name 'newsletter' and appends text to the span next to it.

  <input type="radio" name="newsletter" value="Hot Fuzz" />
  <span>name is newsletter</span>
  <input type="radio" value="Cold Fusion" />
  <span>no name</span>
  <input type="radio" name="accept" value="Evil Plans" />
  <span>name is accept</span>
$("input[name!='newsletter']").next().append("<b>; not newsletter</b>");
