error when animating the background-color property of the body tag

I tried to animate the background-color property of my <body> like this :

$("body").animate({backgroundColor: "#000"});

But the color don't seems to be well interpreted, the value is interpreted as "NaNpx".. it's like the color is interpreted as a pixel value or something..

And by the way, when you use a simple css change like this :

$("body").css({backgroundColor: "#000"});

it works.

I tried on Firefox 3.6.13, on a Windows PC, with jQuery v1.3.2 but i tried with v1.5.1 too and the same issue happens

As documented, the .animate() method animates only numeric properties. Sounds like you would want to use the color plugin. If you need more help ask on
