Actually, that's the problem.  The above describes what happens when 
jQuiDnD work -- the item dragged is set to invisbile, but it moves 
around in the DOM.  In the case where jQuiDnD doesn't work, it is still 
set to invisible, but does *not* move around the dom.

Why would a "float" style stop DOM manipulations?
