Tabs: Hidden tabs can be read by screen readers

Description

Although the hidden tabs are hidden via display:none, some screen readers (noticable Window-Eyes prior to version 7.5) will still read out the content. This can be fixed by adding visibility:hidden to the declaration for .ui-tabs .ui-tabs-hide in ui.all.css.

If we fix this here, it has to be through some framework solution and not something specific to tabs (we'll also need to apply the fix to every widget).
