so i'm developing a huge web app in Ruby and i've been using Mozilla. i have 
been very careful to reduce potential cross-compatability issues. so i go to 
run the app on IE to see how it fairs, and right off the bat i get an error. 
turns out that IE does not submit a <button> tag's value attribute, but 
rather tries to submit the entire innerHTML of the button! yes, that's right, 
the whole content, no matter what it is, <img>, <table> whatever. how 
idiotic! i did a bit of research and this was supposed to be fixed by IE5.5. 
well i just installed IE6 and it still does it. It is such an obvious error 
that it amounts to a BLATANT disregard for standards.

so to hell with them. unless someone shows me a way to fix IE, my app is 
simply not going to work on it and i don't care.

sorry, to rant, but i needed an outlet.

thanks,
