IE Broken Support for getElementsByName
So, of course as I write code, I keep coming across the failings of IE7 (Internet Explorer 7). The latest one is that even though they say it supports it, it really doesn’t support getElementsByName, which is a really useful function.
Anyway, I found a decent solution, or at least a starting point at dream.in.code.
It takes the nodes of a specified tag name, in other words, getElementsByTagName, and builds a node array out of the tags of that type that have the name that you are looking for. It should work pretty well. Or, maybe Microsoft could just fix IE.
