You're righht about that parameter. However, changing it still makes no
difference. I've been tweaking the code, trying simpler and simpler versions (as you can see from the demos below), and it's still not working on IE.

Specifying the version of JavaScript as 1.4 seems to be a factor. I found
that changing this to 1.2 or 1.3 or omitting it altogether allowed the
script to work in Internet Explorer.

Turns out that's in the right area, but not the problem. I eventually posted this also to a JavaScript list, where I found out that, unlike what I was taught in a class just last spring, the language attribute is deprecated. Instead, I neede to use the text attribute. Once I changed that, the problems went away.

That said, "deprecated" doesn't mean "do not use," so I'd say that this is yet another Microsoft IE bug.
