Invalid Argument in IE 8

I ran across a problem in one of the plugins for JQuery, however I am posting it in here because I do not think it is a problem with the plugin.

If you run the project in IE 8 you get an invalid aggument error. The error is located on line 835 - "style.left = ret || 0;" in the jquery-1.3.2.js file.

The demo is located here:

If you run the webpage in IE 7 compatibility mode it works fine. It also works fine in IE 7, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.

I was wondering if there is anything I can do to fix this.

Thank you,

You can use the IE8 debugger to look up the call stack to see that it's dying when the plugin does this:

   helperElement.css('zIndex', settings.zindex);

the value of

settings.zindex}} is {{{NaN
because the plugin tries to parse a number and the value of
. That is a legal value according to the W3C:

I don't see a core jQuery bug here, it's returning the css value correctly and the plugin is not anticipating the value it gets.
