Sortable + revert + IE6 + scrollbar = weird behaviour

Hello developers,

I've got a little issue with the sortable feature of Jquery UI. I've got examples set up and the problem only occurs in IE6 when you've got a scrollbar (not attached to the top, but when you've scrolled down).

When I create 2 columns with divs that are sortable, add a "revert:

300" to the sortable function, in IE6 the div that you are dragging

will "float" to the wrong position when you've got a scrollbar. It

will end up in the correct position when the "revert" is done.


Note that this only happens when I've got a (valid) doctype defined.

In other (newer) browsers this works just fine.

Here's an example without doctype:

It works fine then in all browsers, including IE6.

As requested (, here's the ticket.

Thanks for contributing! Support for IE6 is being dropped in the next version of jQuery UI, and so alas, this is a wontfix.
