Unable to get height on DIV tag that has begun fading in...

I have a function that fades out a DIV, changes the content of the DIV, fades in the DIV and the resizes the font in case there's too much text to fit on one screen...

Here is the calling line that doesn't work anymore:

$("#Request").fadeOut(1000, function() {$("#description").html('<p>' + sDescriptions[iRequest]) + '</p>';$("#title").html(sTitles[iRequest]); $("#Request").fadeIn(1000); AdjustFontSize(" & iScreenH & "); $("#Request").vAlign(); $("#Request").focus(); });

The AdjustFontSize function uses this code, which returns 0 for the height:

divHeight = $('#description').height();

This happens in I.E. 8 (haven't tested other browsers), and was not a problem in version 1.6.1 of JQuery.

At the point where AdjustFontSize is called it would seem that the element isn't yet visible, thus the height of 0. (Assuming that #description is nested under #Request, but that's just a guess since there was no test case.) This seems better triaged on a forum, I don't think it's a bug.
