Applying backgroundRepeat in .css() causes error in IE7

Reported by: digitalspaghetti Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: 1.2.2
Component: core Version: 1.2.1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

Applying the below code:

$('<div>Reward:<br />' + sym + item.reward + '</div>')
fontSize: '80%',
width: '33%',
styleFloat: 'left',
backgroundColor: '#ff6',
backgroundRepeat: 'none',
textAlign: 'center',
display: 'none'
.appendTo('#question-' +;

This causes an error in IE7, line 906:

Error: Could not get the backgroundRepeat Property. Invalid argument. This error actually appears to be in the .attr() function in jQuery.js:

if ( value != undefined ) elem[name] = value;

Shouldn't it be backgroundRepeat:'no-repeat'?

As Robin noted, the wrong setting was used so this bug is invalid.
