No, wait, come back! I know it sounds mundane and simple, but remember, this is happening in the browser where the theoretically simple becomes a legacy-driven quirk-hole. Knowing these quirks lets you pick the fastest, least disruptive way to load scripts. If you’re on a tight schedule, skip to the quick reference.

Possible DOM bug in Firefox

tags: Firefox, bug, DOM

I found what appears to be a bug in Firefox 1.0.4. Using JavaScript, i'll append a new DOM node, a link, into a web page. Using Link.setAttribute( 'href', 'http://www.mit.edu/' ) the link is clickable, but using Link.setAttributeNS( 'http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml', 'href', 'http://www.mit.edu' ) it is not.

My example is here.

The source of this example is XML Transformations with CSS and DOM from the Apple developer site.
