.show() ignores .visibility

When .show() is called on an element which has 'visibility: hidden', it simply ignores this. I'd say .show() is a way to simply tell the element to show itself! So therefore I suggest the following solution to make .show() also work on invisible elements;

	show: function(speed,callback){
		return speed ?
				height: "show", width: "show", opacity: "show"
			}, speed, callback) :
				this.style.display = this.oldblock ? this.oldblock : "";
				if ( jQuery.css(this,"display") == "none" )
					this.style.display = "block";
				if ( jQuery.css(this,"visibility") == "hidden" )
					this.style.visibility = "visible";

The show and hide methods deal only with the display property.

By now the discussion has continued on the jquery dev group.

Please reconsider. Brandon has already replied. See the following 2 posts for the discussion: http://groups.google.com/group/jquery-dev/browse_thread/thread/6ca936d7e0ebad3c http://groups.google.com/group/jquery-dev/browse_thread/thread/b747f9a937ed93d3

Elements can be hidden by changing display, visibility, opacity, or by positioning them out of the viewport (e.g., large negative margin). Up to this point hide/show have only dealt with display. Has there been a problem with that interpretation?

Since this is long-documented behavior that would likely break existing code if changed, I'll close this ticket.
