Hey guys,

The code in question is at www.isthatclear.com/svcm. To get the error, click on "Services."

This animation/fade code works perfectly in Firefox and looks amazing. In IE, it's totally broken and looks horrible. When I click on Services, it gives me this error listed in the code box.
Also listed in the code box is the contents of the .js file I'm using for the animation.

Any ideas?

I figured out the problem. IE doesn't like it when you use jQuery to set the "position" css attribute. I just set it in my css file instead.
