If the border-width is set to Thin, Medium or Thick the width() and height() functions will return the border-width included (in IE at least).

I have a script that doesn't have this bug located here:

This is to much of an edge case to try and put a workaround into the library slowing down all other use-cases. Please use a different measurement to assign border width to have better control over the layout.

i came across this issue when working on a jquery ui plug-in. i see no work-around when you're working on a plug-in because you have no control over the borders they may set. i have to resort to hard-coding a pixel value based on the string IE returns.
