boxModel check affects page layout

Reported by: ricardobeat Owned by: john
Priority: minor Milestone: 1.3.2
Component: support Version: 1.3.1
Keywords: boxmodel, layout, IE6 Cc:
Blocked by: Blocking:

The DIV inserted by the check for box model in use in support.js (line 89+) affects page layout in IE6. The problem seems to be caused by the offsetWidth check - for some reason accessing that property triggers a rendering update.

The proposed patch adds display:none to the DIV after removing it, which leaves the layout intact.
