    For anyone else encountering this problem, it turns out that there is a bug
    in the JS engine. They are working on it.

  5. Have you tried using that encoding inline instead?

    Also, one interpretation of this article and an inspection of the
    encodingtest.js file would suggest that it is missing some of
    the "encoding marker"?

    E.g., I would try inserting those first two comment lines in clear text
    at the start of your current version of encodingtest.js

    FWIW I just tried that using the copy in the TIF while Working Offline
    (since all pieces are cached.) I actually inserted three lines:

    //Copyright© 1998. ZYX Productions. All rights reserved.

    //**Start Encode**

    There is also some ambiguity about whether there may be a line end
    after the two asterisks. I tried both ways. No luck with either.
    Of course, if an inline version doesn't work either, that would not be
    unexpected... <eg>

    Good luck

    Thanks for the reply. I took a look at the MSDN link you provided.
    Basically that comment directive is only read by screnc.exe as it encodes
    inline JS in an HTML page. Nevertheless, in the interest of being thorough,
    I updated my test page to include a number of different permutations. Sadly,
    none of them work in IE7 though all work in IE6.

    Here's the link again:

    Take care,
