hidden inputs are not :enabled in IE6/7

I would expect that is(':enabled') implies !is(':disabled') and vice versa, and this seems to be the case in most browsers. However, in IE 7.0.5730.13, my test case fails when it finds an <input type="hidden"> element that is apparently neither enabled nor disabled.

Lots of ancient history here.


As of that commit in 2008, a disabled/enabled element must have a property that is a boolean value, so that :enabled checks elem.disabled===false and won't say an arbitrary element is enabled. The check for type !== "hidden" predates the Github repo and seems to be the real issue here.

Logically it does seem like these should be complements of each other, but it's been broken this way for a LONG time.
