    If you view the site in IE9, it is not recognizing the height set by jQuery…does anyone know a workaround or can tell me how crappy my jQuery is so i can fix it?

    obviously it works in chrome, because chrome doesn’t suck arse.
    Thanks Guys!

    The Site:
    Here is the jQuery:

    $(document).ready(function(e) {
    var halfScreen = document.height / 2;
    var tp = $('.top');
    var btm = $('.bottom');
    var map = $('');
    $('.top, .bottom').css('height', halfScreen);
    map.hover(function() {
    map.css('display', 'none');
    height: halfScreen - 100,
    }, {
    duration: 1000,
    queue: false,
    specialEasing: {
    height: 'easeOutBounce'
    marginTop: '+=100'
    }, {
    duration: 1000,
    queue: false,
    specialEasing: {
    marginTop: 'easeOutBounce'

    This doesn’t have anything to do with IE “sucking arse.” document.height is non-standard and obsolete. If you want to use raw JavaScript, you should check document.documentElement.clientHeight , which works in all major browsers, including IE.

    Since you’re using jQuery though, just utilize it to determine the height of the document.

    var halfScreen = $(document).height() / 2;

    Nice effect by the way.
