Here are two bookmarklets that could make your life easier when trying to figure out why in IE a page behave as wrong as it behaves. For Firefox we have Firebug, so none of this is necessary. For IE we have also Firebug lite (see my post), but you need some setup before you can use it. With this thing here you can mess up any page you see on the web, not only yours
Bookmarklet 1 - Eval() textarea
document.something, it refers to the document in the frame, not the frameset.
If you don't select any text and click the bookmarklet, it will place the textarea in the topmost document, so it will work for frame-free pages as well.
So here's the bookmarklet.
And here's a page where you can test.
Bookmarklet 2 - dump anything
document.location for example. Then it shows you an alert with all properties of this thing you typed. (Don't try to dump
document though, or something else that recurses, because the script won't handle the recursion and will freeze).
Install it from here:
While this second bookmarklet will most likely work in FF as well, you don't need it, you have firebug!
