MSIE Table DOM Gotcha

2008-01-18 @ 11:06#

ran into a nasty bug today while DOM-scripting a TABLE object within the TD of a parent table. turns out FF does this fine, but MSIE *refuses* to render the table.

that's because i failed to include TBODY in my DOM script!

see, if you don't use TBODY the inner table fails to render. i suspect that's due to the way MSIE renders/sizes tables internally. but man that was a nasty bug.

i got my help from this nice example. thanks, bill!
