The site document.writes() this element:

       <div id='DivVisibleBox'>

and then tries to access it in the following way in 
http://www.svt.se/granskning/Javascript/scrollbox.js:


function moveIt(y)
{
  varY = y;

  if(isIE)
    document.all['DivTextBox'].style.top = varY;
  else
    document.DivVisibleBox.document.DivTextBox.top = varY;
}


The non-IE branch is coded incorrectly. For Mozilla or any other
W3C-compliant browser, they need to  do 

    document.getElementById('DivVisibleBox') etc. etc.

this web-site cleaned up their act and fixed this bug, many others remain on
this web-site.
Why this disparity between Mozilla (supposing it adheres to W3 standards) and a
web-site 
written for IE-products? Is this the convicted Monopoly in action? Or just poor
java programmming?
