Which version of jQuery does this occur in?

I believe we just need to take the clientLeft and clientTop into consideration... just like we have to do in offset

We need a test case for this.

Closing due to lack of test case.

The document has no content, so the document height should match the window height: http://temp.nemikor.com/height.html

Fix #3838, $(document).height() incorrect in IE6

May still be broken in Netscape Navigator 4.

I believe this fix changed the value of $(document).height() in Firefox (using 12). While in Chrome and IE9 the value is consistent.

I can't reproduce this in jsFiddle as I think the result iframe's css works around this issue but this pastebin (http://pastebin.com/MaUuLjU2) will demonstrate the problem.

In 1.7.1, the scrollHeight of the body element will be returned, while in 1.7.2 the clientHeight of the html element will be returned.

Thank you.
