.hide() does not work on select options in IE

I can't get .hide() to work on a select option object in IE, apparently because of a bug in IE. The option does not disappear. Works fine in Firefox. See for a longer discussion by some other guy.

FWIW, I managed to hack around this by removing the option with the jQuery select plugin, keeping track of the sort order and then inserting it again at the right place according to the sort order with select.add (which in IE takes an integer instead of a DOM object as the second parameter). Cumbersome, but actually faster than rebuilding the select box (I have many of them so speed is essentiel).

Reading through the thread on Cody's blog, it's apparent that there isn't any feasible fix for IE. I guess I'll just have to mark this as 'wontfix' :-(

@olau - You can just wrap the options in spans instead of adding/removing/cloning. I have an article here,
