Twitter Bootstrap Modal - Grey background but no window

I'm having a bit of an odd problem with Twitter Bootstrap and the non-JS examples of modal, what happens is that the modal background appears (greys) but the window does not.

I've found if I remove the "hide" class from the modal windows div, it will load but not correctly.

The Fiddle is here: http://jsfiddle.net/2VbUG/1/

The code has come from this tutorial on Bootstraps website http://getbootstrap.com/2.3.2/javascript.html#modals

Answer

You're referencing the Bootstrap version 3 css but using the version 2 example code.

Try using the version 3 example code.
