Description (last modified by Scott González)

If you have an element that is positioned absolutely and you use position. It has to have a top value set. If it is left off, IE7/8 will position the element in the wrong page location.

This is fixed with jQuery 1.4.3 (unreleased). The problem is actually in jQuery's offset setter. See

The workaround for this is to just do .css({ top: 0, left: 0 }).position({...}) which is what we do in all of the jQuery UI plugins. We won't fix this in the position plugin, just use the workaround until jQuery 1.4.3 is released.
