jQuery selectors: select two elements, and all elements in between

I have a load of LIs inside an UL, and each one has a unique ID.

Given two IDs, what's the best way to select the two corresponding LIs, and all the LIs in between?

Thanks!

Answer

http://api.jquery.com/nextUntil/

Given a selector expression that represents a set of DOM elements, the .nextUntil() method searches through the successors of these elements in the DOM tree, stopping when it reaches an element matched by the method's argument. The new jQuery object that is returned contains all following siblings up to but not including the one matched by the .nextUntil() argument.

If the selector is not matched or is not supplied, all following siblings will be selected; in these cases it selects the same elements as the .nextAll() method does when no filter selector is provided.

As of jQuery 1.6, A DOM node or jQuery object, instead of a selector, may be passed to the .nextUntil() method.

The method optionally accepts a selector expression for its second argument. If this argument is supplied, the elements will be filtered by testing whether they match it...
