When calling animate('width', 'show') on hidden inline element it shows up immediately instead of animating the width. When hiding it works as expected.
I pinpointed it to line 8243 non-minimized jQuery source v.1.6.4:
jQuery.css( this, "display" ) === "inline"
It checks whether "display" style equals "inline" but it gets "none".
I don't know what should be the proper way to fix it or even if it should be fixed, but I thought I should report it.
