Visual Studio jQuery Code Snippets

I have updated the popular jQuery code snippets for use in Visual Studio 2012.

Most of these snippets were originally developed by John Sheehan (http://jquerysnippets.codeplex.com/) for Visual Studio 2010.

Please feel free to submit pull requests to update this project.
