      It causes no harm on all of the other browsers. I recommend that you report it to Microsoft instead.

      For over a decade we have tried to work around IE's failings. As a result, Microsoft apparently found little need to fix this stuff. So I won't do it any more. If something works everywhere except on IE, then let it fail.

      Not everyone has the freedom to do that, but I do, and I am exercising that right as a Programming American.
