IE Emu for Moz (WebFX)

IE Emu for Moz (WebFX): "When it comes to DHTML Mozilla might be less powerful than IE4 but when it comes to JavaScript it just kicks ass. The first time a saw a setter being used with a prototype of the built-in HTMLElement constructor I was just blown away. One of my first thought at that time was that this was exactly what I needed to start emulating the IE DHTML Object Model for Mozilla.

The goal of this article is to emulate a lot of IE behaviors to work in Mozilla, both to make old IE specific scripts work in Mozilla but also to make it easier to create new scripts that work in both IE5 and Mozilla. The article is actually going to be a series of smaller articles, each one concentrating on a small part of the emulation."
