@scottgonzalez, do a blame on the file and see why the old line was present. I believe this was me fixing a bug in actual IE6.


scottgonzalez commented Nov 12, 2012

Ok, I'll test against the fiddle from #11048.


scottgonzalez commented Nov 15, 2012

@mikesherov I tested against the previous bug, and this doesn't cause a regression.

In jQuery 1.7.1 (prior to the fix for #11048), the positioned element shifted down several pixels. If you run the same test against 1.7.2 with the zoom removed, the element is shifted down a few pixels (improved, but not fixed). Setting the zoom on either the container or the body prevents the element from shifting down.

I've added another comment to the line I changed to reference the old ticket as well, so that it's clear what this line is doing.

I was concerned this might reset a zoom the user selected from a previous visit, but the user's zoom setting (from IE's menu or control-wheel on the mouse) does not seem to affect body.style.zoom.

Using jQuery 1.9beta1 I'm seeing the style="zoom: 1; " showing up on the <body> tag in webkit browsers. Possibly a bug related to this commit?

@philwareham Is that causing issues for you or do you just not like the style being there?

Well, for one thing zoom is not a valid CSS rule, it's an IE proprietary rule that even they have deprecated at IE9 so it should never be visible to modern browsers.

It's creating loads of CSS error warnings in the console on Opera.

Basically, if you are going to use it, make sure it's only applied to IE < 9 and nothing else.
