Colin, thanks for taking the time to look. Yes, the form has some hidden
fields with data (user must be logged in to access this particular form).
I found the problem... fixed it about 8 minutes ago, had to update the
The problem only surfaces under IE9. If you click into compatibility mode
the problem goes away.
Our doctype WAS defined as:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "
And the serialize failed.
I changed several things:
The doctype now reads:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "
Which in and of itself did NOT fix the problem.
So I forced compatibility mode using:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" />
This solved the problem.
Backing back out to the original doctype with the forced compatibility mode
and the problem resurfaced.
Maybe someone a whole lot smarter than me will be able to figure out a real
solution for someone else! LOL
