Well if you didn't set the original CSS style on your element to an opacity less than 1.0 then there's nothing to fade IN to. It's already IN so to speak, meaning it's already fully visible.

Also, I believe fadeIn requires a callback as the second parameter.

$(document).ready(function() { 
    $('#foo').fadeIn(3000, function() {
        // Animation complete

Thanks, that is true, or I could also use display: none; in css –  Conrad C Dec 17 '12 at 4:37
@Xaxis The callback parameter is optional. –  RoToRa Dec 17 '12 at 11:59
