What the summary says..

The change event for css hidden inputs fires on other browsers i've tested, FF 3.5+, Chrome 9+, Safari 5, Opera 11.

But not in IE8, i haven't tested older versions but i'm almost sure is going to be the same result.

Confirmed. Clicking the label area should trigger a change event on the checkbox input

IE just refuses to fire events on an invisible checkbox. A workaround would involve attaching a click event to the corresponding label and then guarding against a duplicate invocation if there was also a click event attached to the checkbox itself. Also there is the case of a label wrapped around the checkbox itself, where a click event on the visible checkbox would bubble up to the label.

Given all those special cases, this isn't practical to fix inside jQuery. It is easier to fix at the application level where you know which of the cases apply to the code and markup.
