Developed this really slick, internal website where I use a ton of AJAX calls to constantly load next-steps into the browser. I’m using this as a way to make the screen much easier to use — instead of a large number of form-fields to fill out, the user is only given what is needed right-now, then, given what’s needed next in a contextually relevant way (thereby not even having/displaying fields that are irrelevant to the circumstance).
And then I tried it all in IE. Ugh. Finally got it to work (CSS hacks and all), only to have formatted text have its tags stripped. Instead of having a heading-line followed by an unordered list, I got plain text. PLAIN text. Grrr. (more…)
