css() function returns physical height/width rather than the CSS attribute value when 100%

Reported by: Owned by:

Blocked by: Blocking:

When an element has its height or width CSS attribute set to "100%", the jQuery css() function returns the physical bounds of the element rather than the CSS attribute value. In version 1.4.2 the css() function returned "100%" as expected.

Example (toggle between version 1.4.2 and 1.4.3 to see the difference in behavior):

I wouldn't say fixed but in #7283 it was stated that:

>this is definitely the desired result now

Though, in all versions that I have used (1.2.6, 1.3.2, 1.4.2) until 1.4.3, the query of inline css using


would always return the text value, i.e. 50% or 1em etc.rather than a calculated pixel value.
