I want to get the dynamic heights of some html divs. I am not programmatically applying height to them (so I don't know their values). If I fetch the height in mozilla I am able to fetch the exact value in px but in case of IE it gives "auto". How do I get their exact values? Please help

<div style="height:32px;border: 2px solid green;" id="one"> hello world</div>
<a href="javascript:alert(document.getElementById('one').style.height);">Click</a>
