css font-size get value or height get value in pixels

.css('font-size') value doesn't give the correct

font size value in pixels of specified DOM node(or selector)

it gives what is 'written' in the html like:


FONT-SIZE=3 means some relative value , inherited from parent


when I use currentStyle of offsetParent, I get correct value

so what is the advantage of using jquery .css if it doesn't give the computed value (or currentStyle) of a node ?

same problem with the height, that many times gives : 'auto' ...

2. textNode (type=3) css

it would be big advantage to get all css inherited values

also on textNode selector, so it gives exact absolute position in the terms:
