Imx Fix in my experience

Apple has posted an article about JavaScript support in Macintosh based browsers, and Safari supposedly scores well (but doesn't win). In my experience, the JavaScript engine is totally screwed up when it comes to dealing with forms, especially when doing client side validation onSubmit. In an internal web app I work with, we have a checkbox that gets its state checked to do an eval on another form element. No matter which state it's in, it gets tripped off for some reason.

I can't even begin to support Safari until the JavaScript engine is fixed, and hopefully the final production version of Safari will be pretty solid, but even then, I know I'll be tweaking our scripts. Just call me Sisyphus.
