Notice how my fiddle adds the class="AppleStyle1" to  any span tag whose id ends in DivImageContainer_Span2

How do i add the not selector on this line:
$("span[id$='DivImageContainer_Span2']").addClass("AppleStyle1");

so basically i want to opposite of my fiddle above.

I want to add this class="AppleStyle" to  any span tag whose id doe not end in DivImageContainer_Span2

I think what you want is this
 $("span[id!='DivImageContainer_Span2']").addClass("AppleStyle1");

Open in new window


This will apply the style to all divs that are not "DivImageContainer_Span2"

so you would want something like this
$("span").not("[id*='DivImageContainer_Span2']").addClass("AppleStyle1");

Open in new window
