Description Darin Adler 2007-08-26 13:38:18 PDT
The Blizzard fan art pages seem to have been recently updated. The page at <http://www.blizzard.com/inblizz/fanart/ScreenShot.shtml> fails with a JavaScript exception.

There's a function call importXML:

function importXML()

	if (document.implementation && document.implementation.createDocument)
		xmlDoc = document.implementation.createDocument("", "", null);
		xmlDoc.onload = addEntries;
	else if (window.ActiveXObject)
		xmlDoc = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLDOM");
		xmlDoc.onreadystatechange = function () {
			if (xmlDoc.readyState == 4) addEntries()
		alert('Your browser can\'t handle this script');

I'd normally expect to see something like this done with XMLHttpRequest.

Annoying. I use this website a lot.

We really need to support document.load.  It's standard DOM 3.

Comment 4 Dave Hyatt 2007-08-26 13:59:19 PDT
But yeah, the site could easily use XMLHttpRequest and work everywhere.

I decided to look this up in DOM 3, and I couldn't find it.

What I found for load and save was this: <http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-3-LS/>. It seems to me like a simple "load" function on Document is not part of it. Instead the function is called createLSParser. Am I missing something? Where's the plain old "load" for Document?

I'm getting the impression that this is not DOM 3 load at all, but rather something else that's implemented by Gecko.

I believe it was in DOM 3 L/S at one point, but has since been removed.

Mass moving XML DOM bugs to the "DOM" Component.
