I'm trying to get a project I'm working on IE7-proof and I'm running into
errors right from the start. The project is almost finished so I'm already
including a lot of scripts and already have a lot of markup. When I load my
page I get the error
Object doesn't support this property or method. prototype.js line 291
...and lot's of others, but this one occurs in prototype.js pretty much is
the basis for everything else. All scripts depend on one call in a
"dom:loaded"-observer to be exectuted. I commented that line out so nothing
get's executed but I still get the error in prototype.js. And I have no idea
where to start. Fermion in the IRC-channel told my prototype doesn't work in
quirksmode in IE7. I'm using XHTML 1.0 Transitional and I get
validation-errors because I use custom attributes in some tags. But I
created a file that uses Prototype and has custom attributes for testing
pruposes and that page works well.
If someone has an idea or a tip it's very appreciated.
Thanks and have a nice weekend,
