The documentation for css(name) in states, "Shorthand CSS properties (e.g. margin, background, border) are not supported. For example, if you want to retrieve the rendered margin, use: $(elem).css('marginTop') and $(elem).css('marginRight'), and so on." However, the documentation for jQuery(expression, [context]) at uses the following shorthand as example code:

$("div > p").css("border", "1px solid gray");

I think it's only the retrieval that doesn't support shorthand.

Right, retrieval varies across browsers and is not normalized by jQuery. The note you mention is in the

(retrieval) documentation.
