walking the DOM with IE in Mac OS X

I can't believe how much work it is to support IE in OS/X. Using the DOM with JavaScript is also amazingly slow. Netscape/Mozilla/Firebird run circles around it. So why even bother? Because the new PowerBooks come with it installed and we have patrons who insist on the OSX/IE combination.

 

So, for example:
var imgNode = document.createElement('IMG');
imgNode.src = imgSrc;
document.body.appendChild(imgNode);
Will take much longer on IE than Netscape. Maybe I should just be grateful it works at all.
