$("#leadform1 > *").each(function(){
   $(this).attr("id", ("zoo" + $(this).attr()) );
});

You should not set the same id for multiple object. WIth an indice :
Use :


$(document).ready(function(){
 $('#rq1').click(function() {
  var i = 0; // indice to have distinct id
  $("p","#leadform1").each(function() { // only paragraph
//      alert('I want to add "zoo" to the beginning of every id inside leadform1');
      $(this).attr("id", "zoo"+i++);
//      return false;
  });
 });
});

sorry it should be
$("#leadform1 > *").each(function(){
   $(this).attr("id", ("zoo" + $(this).attr("id")) );
});

Thank you both.  Unfortunately your ideas do not work for me because they are not recursive.  Please test the code below and you will see the problem, thanks!

Use .find() instead of .children() in this case : http://api.jquery.com/find/


$("#leadform1").find().each(function(){

Thanks, but how can I use find to find/replace everything?

hmm...leak is right, find() is the recursive version of children()

This will find all descendants: $(this).find('*');
