I updated jQuery to 1.8.1 and have the foolowing issue:

$(window).height() returns the height of the document (including scroll). Before this jQuery upgrade I only had the visible window height.

Could you please fix it?

It sounds like your page may be in Quirks mode, which jQuery does not support. Can you confirm?

How can I check that?

Is that depending of doctype?

In my case it is:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC '-W3CDTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN'>

OK, my issue is from the doctype.

I'm having some extra issues using the doctype you suggest so I will fixe these little issues and use this new doctype definition.

You can close my ticket!
