css("top") (and similar getters) returns different values in different browsers

if I do not specify certain elements' position values (top, left, etc.) in the CSS, then, when getting for example $(this).css("top"), different browsers give different values: in firefox (3.6.3) it returns a value, like 110px, while in ie8 and chrome it returns 'auto'.

see attached file in the mentioned browsers for a demo.

this difference can cause serious problems when using this value later.
