I've never really coded a regex heavy script in JS before, but WOW does IE SUCK!
My god, how do they manage to get everything wrong? Not only do they get DOM wrong, but they get the very language used to access the DOM wrong! I mean damn, libraries can fix the DOM issues, but who the hell is going to code a JS PCRE library just to fix IE? The funny thing is, I bet if someone did, it wouldn't even work because of some other IE JS quirk.
IE succeeded in making another thing literally unfixable.
I'm so frustrated right now. I don't know what to do.
Is there a complete list of IE regex quirks somewhere?
...how the HELL do they manage to get regex's wrong when they could easily go and download the PCRE library?!
They should be ashamed. What they've done to web development is unforgivable.
