I get this strange error if I use a link_to with the :remote => true parameter in IE 6 and IE 7. IE 8 and all other browsers works just fine:
If I commenting out the code for the link (jQuery binding on ajax:success), the error still appears. I don't know how to locate/track this error, because line 1529... does not exists. What is going wrong here?
The problem was the jQuery
data() function to store stuf into DOM elements. IE doesn't support this at all.
Note that this method currently does not provide cross-platform support for setting data on XML documents, as Internet Explorer does not allow data to be attached via expando properties.
