The following code is supposed to perform an AJAX request after the page loads, and then display the response of that AJAX call in a popup. This works in Firefox, but I have no idea why it does not work in IE8.
page.html just contains
Am I missing something obvious or is this a result of the prototype js library not being fully compatible with IE8? I tried this with the latest stable prototype release (126.96.36.199) and the bleeding-edge version (1.6.1 RC3) with no luck. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!
