" I'm not just making "rubbish" statements. "
As shown this is a false statement, as the controls do generate breaking code as per the example..
I will not comment on what your experience using ssl site is.. as it is not relevant...the probem exists, the code is broken...
"that seems to affect only old versions of IE6"
Wrong this affects all versions of IE in various forms ( our experiecne is from IE5 onwards), the only solution is to fix the problem as per the referenced link or any google thread..
The "always" works solution is blank.html all other will have some issues, have not seem the ".' type solution but suspect it will aslo fail under some cleint settings..
"That said, we definitely need to address the issue"
Great, as mentioned this is just one of the very basic issues with Rad controls, these things are very well known,a nd have been fixed in every control we have used for the last 5 years.. Yours is the first we have seen that does not get this basis stuff..
That said, there are some realy nice aspects of RadControls, if theis very basis stuff is fixed in Q2 2009 we will consider moving to RAd Controls, but at the moment there are too many breaking basic errors..
That being said, all of these have well known fixes and would only take a couple of hours to modify the source to fix..
In fact the time I have spent with tickets and forums on this issue, is actually longer than it would take to fix the probem...
