We used this code to help us debug and see if jQuery could find the value in question:
Which returned a blank pop-up, when it should have been returning "$0.00" instead. The script didn't seem to be finding the value, and when the alert showed up, it was actually drawing the alert before you could actually see the rest of the page.
We moved our $(document).ready() action to the bottom of the page, and everything was just fine after that.
