It's in the fix[] map in jQuery().attr(), but as the Firefox name. A fix for .attr() would be to change this

     "float": "cssFloat",

to this:

     "float": jQuery.browser.msie? "styleFloat":"cssFloat",

I think it might be better to completely separate css from attr, there are some cases in there that need to be handled differently. This page has a pretty good rundown of the quirks:

To fix .curCSS(), these lines should work at the beginning:

if ( prop == "float" ) 
    prop = jQuery.browser.msie? "styleFloat":"cssFloat";

I can't belive this was not included in 1.0.2 .

I would agree that css needs to be seperated from attr and I am working on this. However, in the mean time this bandaid has been applied. In addition to the suggested fix I went ahead and normalized "cssFloat" as well as just "float". Don't use the IE specific "styleFloat" as it will only work for IE.

Fixed in SVN.
