can't remove "border" element style in IE

IE behaves unexpectedly when you try to remove the "border" CSS style. Instead of removing the style, it sets it to "medium none".

Ex. $(this).css("border", "");

doesn't work.

Apparently, though, you can make it work with this code:

if ($.browser.msie) {

$(this).css("borderColor", ""); $(this).css("borderWidth", ""); $(this).css("borderStyle", "");


It would be great if you could make jQuery implement this patch, so it behaves the same in IE as in FF, etc.

Properties like "border" and "margin" are combinations of several different individual properties; generally it's better to use the individual ones. What were you trying to do with the information you got from "border" that tripped you up? Remember that each of an element's 4 sides can have a different border color, style, and width.

The original reporter never provided a response. In general the shorthand properties aren't consistent across browsers.
