Internet Explorer scripting question

Hi Dave, well it's pretty hard to say just from a general description of the problem....

Is it possible for you to make some kind of example that I could try over here to repeat the problem?

Maybe it has something to do with cross-domain security though, although if you're using a relative path like that in src="" then I would think you shouldn't run into that. But most moi pages use the moi:// protocol which is a pluggable protocol that looks in the ui folder to find files. If something else is getting loaded with some other protocol like file:// or something like that maybe you could be hitting cross-domain security.

Maybe the other possibility is the tools you are working with may require standards-mode (with a DOCTYPE declaration) rather than quirks mode which is what MoI happens to use instead?

Do the standalone projects in IE8 work if you remove the doctype declarations from the top of the pages so that they're in quirks mode?

You could also try adding a doctype to your problem page as well, like:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" ""> at the very top.

If you can boil it down to the smallest possible example that I can try over here though, maybe I could take a look at it and see if anything jumps out.
