Incorrect window height in Webkit browsers in xHTML mode

Webkit browsers (tested with Win Safari 3.2.2/Chrome doesn't have document.compatMode property, thus causing jQuery(window).height() to read size from body and not from documentElement, as it should be.

Attached test case contains two identical files saved with different extensions (.html and .xhtml). *.html file shows correct results, *.xhtml file shows "0" for window height. Expicit setting of compatMode (uncomment /*document.compatMode = "CSS1Compat";*/ in *.xhtml file) make it work as expected. I'm also attaching patch that fixes the issue.

No more reproducible with Chrome 8.0.552.237 - can be closed.

Tested the original test cases submitted with latest Chrome and Safari - as per nbelaevski, I can no longer reproduce this issue either. Closing as fixed.
