  1. I can't find out how to send a bug report! OK!
    Here it is! I have a homepage where I using AJAX teknik to get data from an
    database back to for ex
    <input type="text" name="adress" id="adress" size="35" value="">
    or to
    <div id="Fabrikat_namn"></div>
    The Problem with IE8 is there is not am null "\0" but the string "null" when
    the real value is just null. I can se this as an serius bug in javascript in

    IE8 Have changed a bit besouse of this bug:
    document.getElementById(target).innerHTML = (content != null) ? content : "";
    document.getElementById(target).value = (value != null) ? value : "";
    It shuld be this code:
    document.getElementById(target).innerHTML = content;
    document.getElementById(target).value = value;
    An empty string is not the same as null.
