Is there currently a standard for javascript and dynamic html? If so then why
aren't netscape and microsoft following it. If not - then one needs to be made
before Mozilla is released. I consider it a very big bug in both browsers when
code that works on one doesn't work on the other. In the next bug report, I have
included some pages that work correctly on IE but not on Mozilla. I believe
that - until a standard has been set forth - you should support Microsoft's
innerhtml in javascript along with your document.open/close/write for dynamic
html. I think it imperitave you and microsoft come up with a standard because it
is too difficult to write sites that incorporate dynamic html. People want their
sites to work on both browsers.

I understand the frustration. There are standards in the works and we are
attempting to adhere to them. See http://www.w3.org/DOM/. Having said that,
please use the newsgroups (news://netscape.public.mozilla.layout, for example)
rather than the bug database to express these sentiments.
