6866Re: [NH] A Tags INOP in MSIE, But OK in Firefox
- Jun 8, 2010Hi Ray,
must run, can't dig into deeper into this right now, but here's a hint:
It's got to do with the IE zone model: IE thinks your local PC is more
dangerous than a website.
Try to search for "mark of the web" and you'll be fine.
Cost me quite some time and a few grey hairs (CD production).
