I have a js script that updates the contents of <div id="bla"> tag that works on Netscape 4.0 to 6.0 and IE 4.0 forwards. Opera has added the GetElementById but thats as far as I can get. Looks like I am going to give opera users an alert box.
It seems to me that if from 4.0 browsers forward it possible. There should be a way with Opera. ??
I have converted to a full time Opera user and enjoy the heck out of it. This surprises me.
NN4 supports basically nothing from standard DOM1. While innerHTML has been adopted by NS6, it's still not a part of the standard and isn't (afaik) supported anywhere else.
The ...Child() functions and their relatives are part of the standard, so there's a good chance Opera supports them (I don't remember off the top of my head) and they tend to provide better performance than innerHTML. Have you tried them on Opera yet?
