What's the body's height?

Written jQuery-style, but only mildly dependent.

I needed/wanted this code because I was making a modal overlay and wanted the modality to exactly cover the body. The 'modality' is what I've termed the click-proof smoked-glass panel (div).

Note: this is not intended to give you the viewport diemensions, but rather the entire [scrollable] document dimensions.

    // var docSize is declared elsewhere
        var h = $('body')[0];
        docSize = {
            width: h.scrollWidth
            ,height: Math.max(
                $('html')[0].scrollHeight, //webkit
                h.scrollHeight, //ff
                document.documentElement.offsetHeight //ie
