Q Who?

In the continuing saga of "Things I hate about Internet Explorer", today I tackled the issue of IE's screwed support of the <q> tag (specifically that it won't add the quotes in like it's supposed to).

Abandoning the <q> tag altogether is unacceptable in my opinion (though obviously for some people it is the only way to get around the problem), so now all weblog posts get quotes (") automatically added inside any <q></q> tag iff it detects that the user is using IE (otherwise it leaves it well alone). For outside of the weblog, I made a small PHP function to perform the same task. This I suppose, is one of the advantages of dynamically generating all your pages.

If only we didn't have to do such silly things to work around browser bugs.
