jQuery Show Hide Bug

Firstly a big thank you to the original poster of this bug, Jamie Thomspon thank you very much, although it took me a while to find it, thus I am posting it here for reference use.

The issue being is that Safari has trouble with hide/show methods on elements when used by jQuery. The same bug has been reported about fadeIn/fadeOut methods also, although I have not experienced this.

The issue can be solved by the use of CSS. By applying CSS rules to the element, Safari appears to control the hide/show methods correctly.

// This fails in Safari
// Change it to this
