Effect.BlindDown not working with display:inline

<script type="text/javascript" src="/jsinclude/prototype-"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/jsinclude/effects.js"></script>


<script type="text/javascript">
toggleDescription = function()
  element = $('extended_description');
  if (element.visible()) {
    new Effect.BlindUp(element, {});
    $('extended_description_toggle').update('show full description +');
  } else {
    element = $('extended_description');
    new Effect.BlindDown(element, {scaleMode:'contents'});
    $('extended_description_toggle').update('hide full description -');

<div class="description">this is the description preview</div>
<div style="display:none;" class="extended_description" id="extended_description">this is the extended description. this is the extended description. this is the extended description. this is the extended description. this is the extended description.</div>

<div class="extended_description_toggle"><a onclick="toggleDescription()" id="extended_description_toggle">show full description +</a></div>


The BlindDown/BlindUp effects in the above code don't work (tested in Safari 3 and Firefox 3 both on windows XP). It functions as though show() and hide() are being called on the element instead of the effect. When I get rid of "display:inline" from the css style, it works (although the layout is then not the way it should be)
