There are always a few gotchas here and there. We still find people running into the “IE get requests going into the cache” issue, and there are also issues with
Rob Sanheim talked about a recent issue:
After much hardship I’m giving up on trying to use Prototype’s Insertion function for inserting new rows after a specified target row. Everything I try works in Firefox but blows out in IE 6, which is the “supported platform”. After some searching it seems IE has inconsistent support for the insertAdjacentHTML method, and apparently for elements like TR and TBODY IE will throw an exception if the method is called on those methods. In the latest prerelease there is a fix for tbodys, but nothing for tr, and my knowledge dom manipulation fell short when trying to hack that in. If anyone can see how to add that to prototype.js, please let me know. This seems like something that would be commonly done with Rails apps for dynamically adding rows to a table, so its curious that I couldn’t find anything via Google
We can read about this on good ‘ole MSDN: innerHTML property.
The important piece is:
The property is read/write for all objects except the following, for which it is read-only: COL, COLGROUP, FRAMESET, HTML, STYLE, TABLE, TBODY, TFOOT, THEAD, TITLE, TR.
