Description

I have a tablesorter where the first column contains a checkbox.

This works: $('table.tablesorter tbody td:first-child').live('click', function(e){alert('clicked')});

This doesn't work: $('table.tablesorter tbody td:first-child :checkbox').closest('td').live('click', function(e){alert('clicked')});

http://docs.jquery.com/Events/live#typefn

"Live events currently only work when used against a selector."

This is because when the event bubbles up to the document, the selector alone is used to determine whether there is a match. You can't use any chain filters like .closest() or .parent() after the selector.
