It was necessary for me in my project to know does browser support minWidth or not. So I added this checking to $.support. It would be nice to see this feature in next release of jQuery.

/* */
$(function() {
		table = document.createElement('table'),
		tr = table.appendChild(tr = document.createElement('tr')),
		td = tr.appendChild(td = document.createElement('td'));

	table.cellPadding = 0;
	table.cellSpacing = 0;

	td.innerHTML = '<div style="min-width: 150px;">';


	$.support.minWidth = table.offsetWidth === 150;

	document.body.removeChild(table).style.display = "none";
	table = tr = td = null;

Thanks for taking the time to contribute to the jQuery project by suggesting a new feature.

But I think this isn't going to be included in jQuery core. The docs for already explain why.

While jQuery includes a number of properties, developers should feel free to add their own as their needs dictate. [...] Since jQuery requires these tests internally, they must be performed on every page load; for that reason this list is kept short and limited to features needed by jQuery itself.
