Provide method to get the actual comptued value of styles

When you call jQuery.css("styleName"), there's some chance that jQuery might return the computed style which would be returned from the window.getComputedStyle(domElement) call. However, for various styles such as width and height, jQuery instead calls a 'hook' method, like the one defined in cssHookswidth?. The trouble is that these hooks aren't always desirable; with IE's sub-pixel rounding, for example, I want to get a computed width for an element which looks like "26.65px" and instead jQuery gives me "25px". Maybe jQuery's way is useful for something, but jQuery should provide a way to always get the computed style, as returned by the browser.

That should say jQuery.css(domElement, "styleName") above.

If getComputedStyle returns the data you want, why not use that?

I agree with gibson042, why not use the native styles if that what you want? What's the use case here?

Needs a test case.

gibson042: You might as well ask why should jQuery provide you with any style information via .css(). It's for convenience, just like everything else in jQuery - it would be convenient for me to be able to just quickly get computed style information for a jQuery DOM object.

If your fer-instance is the actual and only issue, then this is a dup.
