jQuery UI Accordion 1.7 Invalid Argument Error in IE 6/7 When Theme Not Included

If I try to use the jQuery UI accordion in a page without using one of the jQuery UI themes (for example 'smoothness'), I get a Javascript "Invalid Argument" error in Internet Explorer Versions 6 and 7 when clicking on any heading item, and the accordion does not function.

Including the theme CSS files appears to fix the problem, but I would think that the Javascript should still work without the theme (since it is an option to download the files without one).

Without using the theme CSS, including...

<style type="text/css">
.ui-helper-reset { border: 0; }

...will fix the problem in IE6. However, in IE7 issues still exists in this fashion: As long as you click to collapse the open heading before clicking on the next one, it works correctly (although a bit jerky). If you click on a different heading before collapsing the currently-open one, however, the same "invalid argument" error is thrown and the accordion no longer functions.

The code I am using for my accordion is as follows:


        $('#accordion').accordion({ header: 'dt', autoHeight: false,
collapsible: true, active: false });



<div id="accordion">
<dt>Click here to open 1</dt>
<dd>Content 1</dd>
<dt>Click here to open 2</dt>
<dd>Content 2</dd>
