The event "select" does not work in IE7

Even the example provided in official docs does not work in IE7:

With IE7, if you select some text in the input fields, nothing happens.

Please fix it. Thanks.

Confirmed with both jQuery 1.3 and 1.2.6 so it's not a regression from there. Also fails in IE8 beta 2.

The problem seems to be that the select event does not bubble in IE. The demo attaches the select event to the document. If you change it to attach directly to the two inputs the demo works correctly.

The best fix may be to document that the event doesn't bubble and change the demo accordingly.

It doesn't look like the select event bubbles in IE8 either, so I updated the documentation to use ":text" as a selector.
