!u@#!^$ “Invalid character” IE error
Internet Explorer is probably the worst browser for web development. Or maybe I’m too used to Firefox.
Let me give you just a simple example, that can drive you mad.
Have you ever encountered the below error?
Line: 2 Char: 1 Error: Invalid character Code: 0 URL: ...
I know that this is my mistake, but I’m totally amazed about the usefulness of the IE error messages. It is a missing file, not an invalid character.
I also wrote a small HTML, for you to see what I’m talking about.
Later update: This was tested on IE6. In IE8 works as expected.
