IE–specific blog problem

I doubt anybody's actually noticed this problem, but I thought occured to me that it might exist and it actually does.

If you try to print your blog in Internet Explorer, it will cause an error. Try it.

Before tags were introduced it wouldn't have.

IE doesn't like having "tags" as an ID, the tag list in your sidebar uses "tags" as an ID. It seems tags is a reserved word, there's been discussion of this going round the good ol' webdesign community of late, and it just occured to me that it would affect us.

But fear not, it'll probably be fixed in the next update because guess who has the job of fixing these things?

  3. Can't you at least break things in some way that actually takes more than a few minutes to fix? This is pure genius on my part and i'll only get paid for about 15 minutes work to fix it :(

  6. Dudes, this could easily have just been an MSN conversation between yourselves.

  7. Also Andy, I think it would be fair if the time you took to research the problem went into the paid hours.

  8. But I didn't research the problem, it's just information I happened to come across :(
