$("col").width() returns 0

It seems that width(), outerWidth() and css("width") no longer work for col elements. Zero is always returned. Here is the repro:

Mike, could you take a look at this?

I have a similar issue:

If you remove the div tag or if you use jQuery 1.7.2, width is reported correctly.

nicola: While jQuery worked in this case in 1.7.2, it was accidental. It worked because jQuery was changing the style of the a tag to display: block momentarily. This causes undesired and incorrect results elsewhere. Removing the div makes it work again, because you once again have valid HTML.

Long story short: use valid HTML and it works fine.

Fix for col coming shortly.

Fix #12243, $("col").width() should return the column's width. Close gh-916.
