Fade animation: children with position:relative ignore the opacity of the parent in IE

Reported by Gilles Ruppert | November 12th, 2009 @ 04:59 PM

IE has a bug where an element ignores the opacity of its parent if it has a position:relative.

<!-- element to be faded -->

<!-- this content will not fade with it's parent in IE6-8 --> this should fade with the parent

jQuery gets around this problem by adding display:block to the container at the end of the animation. I don't know whether this is the correct approach (maybe you still want that space to be filled).

Worth giving a thought, or at least making a note in the documentation
