I know I must be doing something incredibly obviously wrong here, but for the life of me I can't see what.

I am just trying to use fancybox to show the contents of a hidden div in my page. But when I click on the link, fancybox just shows a tiny empty box.

You can see an example here:
http://s1053289.instanturl.net/fancyboxtest.html

And below is the full source:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="wp-content/themes/globalpartnerships/include/commonfunctions.js"></script>
<script src="http://www.google.com/jsapi"></script>
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="wp-content/themes/globalpartnerships/include/jqueryloader.js"></script>
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="wp-content/themes/globalpartnerships/include/fancybox/jquery.fancybox-1.3.4.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="wp-content/themes/globalpartnerships/include/fancybox/jquery.easing-1.3.pack.js"></script>
<script type=text/javascript>
$(document).ready(function()
{
	$("a.fancyboxtest").fancybox({	});
}); // $(document).ready(function()
</script>
<link href="wp-content/themes/globalpartnerships/stylesheet-int.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="wp-content/themes/globalpartnerships/include/fancybox/jquery.fancybox-1.3.4.css" type="text/css" media="screen">
</head>
<body>
      <a id="inline" href="#testcase" class="fancyboxtest">test case</a>
      <div id="testcase" style="display:none;">This is a test case</div>
</body>
</html>

Can anyone help put me out of my misery? :)

Thanks experts!

Ah, thanks so much Gary - I missed that the div I wanted to show had to be wrapped in an outer hidden div!
