... even if the element's height has been specified as a percentage or "auto?"

What are you looking for? Like a Dom Inspector for IE? LMAO

I did find this experiment, although I can't decide what he is really trying to do:

also there is this forum where someone asked the same question:

although these people don't seem so happy to be there. :p

And then I found this one about div height... perhaps with a little magic you can customize it?

Aha -- offsetHeight was what I was looking for, I believe. Thanks :)

Holy Crap! You mean I actually helped someone... nevermind it is an almighty "Mad Prof" such as Twey...

Of course I looked. But in fairness to me, it was 1:18AM. :p

Noted. LOL I have had MANY days like that...

I 'specially hate when I do some 36 to 76 hour coding stretches in Flash and get everything perfect and find it doesn't work... only to spend another 40 hours figuring out I missed a colon in one spot :P

LOL
