How to CSS select all cells with colspan set?

Problem :

I would like to select all cells in the table header which have the colspan attribute set.

Of course I could do something like:

 table thead th[colspan="1"],
 table thead th[colspan="2"],

 table thead th[colspan*=""] {


which does not seem to work.
