I ran into an issue in IE a couple months back & I've seen a couple of other people mention they're having the same issue. It's something that once you've solved in a project you usually don't think about it again... at least until you run into the problem again in a different project.

Craig Fowler stumped me today until he provided a further sampling of his code. Shortly thereafter I realized what the issue was as I've run into the same issue in the past (& hopefully this page will prevent me being stumped in the future).
The code he initially presented me with was
<a onclick="obj1.doSomething();"> ...
and he stated he was having issues with using
this.someMethod(); inside of

One of the biggest issues for web designers is having to deal with multiple browsers, the worste of course being IE. One of the biggest problems with IE is the fact that there are lots of people still using the version that came with their computer & they've never bothered to upgrade! This could mean that some people are running IE 3, but I think the percentage of people actually using IE 3 is not worth worrying about.
Most standards based designers would prefer to be able to toss IE requirements out the window. Unfortunately IE still holds a major share & so most projects require IE compatibility of some sort. Be glad if your requirements only require IE6 .
Considering past projects I've worked on & reading about projects others have worked on I've come to the conclusion that there's 5 "versions" of IE that designers can lump stuff into - pre 5.01, 5.01, 5.5, 6, & 7 (currently only beta is available). Most people don't even bother with pre 5.01 except to make sure that it's readable (a text browser should work just fine). Trying to test a website with multiple versions of IE causes problems because windows only lets you install 1 version. Before somebody figured out how to install multiple versions on the same computer you had to have multiple physical computers - each with it's own different version of IE installed .
