Fixed panelId for ui.tabs

It is beneficial to allow a fixed target panel for tabs when loading content via ajax.

The attached patched utilises an additional option (panelId) to use as the target panel.

Dunno what problem this is supposed to solve, a better description would help.

This will solve the case of having a dedicated panel that is in away from the tabs, and retain the usage of distinct title attributes:

<div id="tabs">
    <li><a href="link1.html" title="Go to Link 1"><span>Link 1</span></a></li>
    <li><a href="link2.html" title="Go to Link 2"><span>Link 2</span></a></li>
    <li><a href="link3.html" title="Go to Link 3"><span>Link 3</span></a></li>
    <li><a href="link4.html" title="Go to Link 4"><span>Link 4</span></a></li>

<div id="panel">Content should be loaded here.</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {

$("#tabs").tabs({panelId: "panel"});

This feature doesn't make sense in the context of tabs.

Replying to [comment:4 scott.gonzalez]:

This feature doesn't make sense in the context of tabs.


In AJAX context it has sense.

This would solve problem of displaying tip text from title attr.

I do not want to use title attr at all.

If i use title attr user will see e.g.: 'panel_123_id' when he mouseover over tab with text e.g: "List of ...."

As of 1.9, tabs no longer uses the title attribute.
