There are certain bugs in IE that can cause problems with using what it
considers reserved words for ID's or class names. I've run into problems
before, particularly when using DXHTML (you know what I mean!) with
elements that had ID's called 'name', etc, even when referencing the
elements correctly with the getElementByID() DOM call. Also, I believe
there used to be a bug in IE (not sure what versions) where classnames
that were the same as ID's caused problems.
