    Hi, I'm getting the following javascript error in IE8 when I use XML as the datasource for the DropDownlist: "Object expected  kendo.all.min.js, line 1 character 14651"

    My code works perfectly fine for all other browsers, just not IE8 (typical). Here is my test code: 

    <!doctype html>
            <title>Binding to remote data</title>
            <link href="http://cdn.kendostatic.com/2011.3.1007/styles/examples.min.css" rel="stylesheet"/>
            <link href="http://cdn.kendostatic.com/2011.3.1007/styles/kendo.common.min.css" rel="stylesheet"/>
            <link href="http://cdn.kendostatic.com/2011.3.1007/styles/kendo.kendo.min.css" rel="stylesheet"/>
            <script src="http://cdn.kendostatic.com/2011.3.1007/js/kendo.all.min.js"></script>
            <div id="example" class="k-content">
                <input id="titles"/>
                    $(document).ready(function() {
                            dataTextField: "name",
                            dataValueField: "id"
                            dataSource: new kendo.data.DataSource({ 
                                type: "xml",                   
                                transport: {
                                    read: {
                                        url: "WebService.asmx/GetTitles",
                                        data: {
                                            Param1: "input1",
                                            Param2: "input2"
                                schema: {
                                    type: "xml",
                                    data: "/NewDataSet/titles",
                                    model: {
                                        fields: {
                                            id: "id/text()",
                                            name: "name/text()"

    Here is the XML:


    Is it my code or is this a bug? Any help is appreciated, I'd rather not have to resort to other jquery plugins
