sorry for the typo the code is

var aa = jQuery("#content").css('z-index');
var bb = (/^\d+$/.test(jQuery("#content").css('z-index')));

The undefined returned by jQuery 1.2.3 was wrong. It was a 0 "masked" into undefined. So it turns out that IE defaults zindexes to 0 and FF to auto. The question here is: Should we normalize this ? to what ?

I'll try to check other browsers to see what's the common denominator.

Looking deeper of this - actually this is a bug in IE6/IE7. If this can help here is link to this problem:


My question too is what should jQuery return in this case? Thank you

IE returns "auto" in many cases, so whatever is done here should be compared with "auto" elsewhere.

It's up to the browser what the default value for a css property is. Both auto and 0 are valid values.

test case to proof valid values are returned.
