Description

Hello

we found a bug in the TableOperations Plugin.
With IE7 the Cell Properties are wrong.
The first option was always 'true' not 'none'

That is, "top right bottom left" -- we only consider the first
value.

  • for (var i=0;i < options.length; i++) {

+ for (var i in options) {

if(typeof options[i] == 'function') continue;

var val = options[i];
option = doc.createElement("option");

With IE8 on it way, i think wasting resources for buggy IE7 does not worth it.

Amazingly, after all this time, there are still people using IE6. Most likely IE6 came installed on their computers and they, not being technically inclined, or whatever, never saw a benefit to or felt comfortable with upgrading IE. That makes me question the idea that IE8's arrival will decisively eliminate IE7 from user's machines in any short period of years. 30.7% of Internet users still used IE6 two months ago, to 22% using IE7.

Source: http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp.

This means that IE7 bugs have to be taken seriously even after IE8 is released, because it will be the browser of a significant percentage of Xinha users for years to come, unless Microsoft forces users to automatically upgrade. Unfortunately.

Also, in corporate environments, years can go by before IE is upgraded if at all, IT departments often prefer to wait and see (often a good thing), or wait until management complains. I visited the headquarters of one of the top three airlines in the United States in 2000 to try to sell an online training platform, every workstation still had IE2 installed, and I couldn't demo. I believe IE 5.5 had just come out...

And, if a user's country's economy is suffering (like the US economy is right now) at the time that IE8 starts arriving on new computers, the new browser's adoption would be delayed if consumers' have to scrape to pay their mortgage, etc. instead of buying a new computer.

I wouldn't bet that IE7 will be gone any time soon. Just my opinion.
