Hi guys, I was messing around with the offsetSomething and clientHeight properties(experimenting with them actually), I noticed that clientHeight always returned "0" on that span element, when I changed to offsetHeight, it returned a value other than "0", BUT when set "style = 'display:block' " on that <span> element, clientHeight returned some value other than "0", and everytime I removed "style = 'display: block;' ", clientHeight returned "0", so clientHeight property only works on block-level elements or am I doing something wrong here? Thank you in advance guys.
