IE and CheckBoxElement

If you name a class anythingCheckBoxElement it will cause wonkiness in IE. Very frustrating. Took me almost 6 weeks to figure this out.

The behaviour I experienced was that a div wouldn’t move properly when other divs around it were moved. Changing the class name of a child table row to filterCheckBoxElement2 resolved the problem. It would seem that CheckBoxElement is a reserved word and may not appear at the start or end of any names. Weird.

Naturally, the vastly superior Firefox has no such limitation! 🙂

  1. I’m not sure how this could have happened, but a large amount of loan spam has infiltrated your post. Doesn’t appear on this page but if you check the source code you’ll see links to http://www.nechton.com

  2. Thank you Henry, you’re absolutely right. I’m not sure how I picked up on that. It seems that the hack came in through the XMLRPC interface, I’m on it. 🙂
