jQuery & Prototype Together Mess Up IE8 Widths

Reported by: bkrausz Owned by:

Description

Steps to reproduce:

1) Use doctype: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-W3CDTD XHTML 1.0 StrictEN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"> (doesn't occur with all doctypes). 2) Include jQuery noConflicted to a new var 3) Include Prototype

Widths all return document.width instead of element.width. This is an obscenely obscure case, but it may indicate something deeper with cleanup from noConflict, so I figured it's worth investigating.

It sounds like Prototype might be overwriting some important document or element property that's causing things to break. Have you reported this to the Prototype team? This is likely something that they would need to fix on their end.
