I posted a message about this to this list about 24 hours ago; however, 
it does not appear in the list archives, so here it is again. But the 
short summary is "yes, it's not working right for me either."


As you all probably know, Microsoft just released a new test version of 
IE which is "Eolas-compatible", along with advice as to how to modify 
scripts and applet calls to avoid getting the "Press OK to continue 
loading this page" popup.

This method involves document.write()ing the <applet> or <object> tag 
from an external JS file.

I have put together a small test page which will do this for both Flash 
and Java:

I believe that I have followed the method given in the document released 
by Microsoft (and Apple, Real and Macromedia.) I have loaded this page 
in the version of IE downloaded from Microsoft's site.

One would expect no popups; however, the popups continue to appear. I 
have tested it on a single Win2K machine and also a WinXP SP1 machine.

Can anyone else confirm that my test still produces popups? Is it a 
problem with my test, or the new IE?
