Browser rant: IE won’t cooperate.

Internet Explorer: Kitten

Internet Explorer's representation of VKitties

  • Me: Hey, Internet Explorer, can you load an SVG for me?
  • IE: A what?
  • Me: Create an EMBED element with the source ‘/data/kitten.svg’
  • IE: Ok.
  • Me: Now append it to the sidebar.
  • IE: Put what where?
  • Me: *sigh* Create an EMBED element with the source ‘/data/kitten.svg’ as a variable called ‘e’
  • IE: Ok.
  • Me: Put the element represented by the variable ‘e’ at the bottom of the last element child of the element represented by the id ‘sidebar’.
  • IE: Ok.
  • Me: That’s not what it’s supposed to look like!
  • IE: ERROR 6704632: Unknown variable “That’s”
  • Me: AAAARGH
  • IE: ERROR 824893: Unknown variable “AAAARGH”
  • Me: Set the ‘fill’ attribute of the element represented by the id ‘kittenFill’ in the content document of the window represented by the variable called ‘e’ to ‘#f00’
  • IE: Ok.
  • Me: // Nothing changed…
  • IE: Ok.

And now, a few pictures:
