As far as I can tell, the script in the page in question is fully ECMA-262
compliant, and the DOM is fully W3C DOM2 HTML compliant.

If the script errors, it's a UA bug. I would like to know which UA that
is, but if you are unwilling to divulge this information, then I'm sure
I'll manage to get over my disappointment.
