IE8 does not support the change event while using live
|Reported by:||matiasnu||Owned by:||brandon|
According to http://jquery14.com/day-01/jquery-14
The change and submit events work reliably across browsers for both normal and live events. We override the normal change and submit events in Internet Explorer and replace them with events that work identically to the other browsers.
This is not true for IE8, which seems to ignore live bound change events. (is I use bind, it works as advertised, though)
