Description

$('#notesTextArea').css({ "display": "inherit" });

The above code works in FF but in IE 7 it creates a javascript error : "Could not get the display property. Invalid argument"

If IE doesn't support inherit it's up to the developer to either avoid using it totally or work around the situation in IE. jQuery could certainly swallow the error in various ways, but that would lead to further confusion because IE wouldn't actually be using the property you thought you set.

For what it's worth, .css("display","table-row") and table-cell also does not work in IE7.
