Setting "z-index: auto" in IE6 gives a type mismatch error

<a href="#">click me</a>


  function () {

Onclick the javascript will try to give z-index: auto but in IE6 i receive a type mismatch error (debugger sends me to line 1120 - jquery 1.2.6)

Setting a number instead of "auto" value will work proper and no errors in IE6.

Setting CSS values that IE does not understand no longer throws errors.
