I am a web developer. Tech-wise, I focus on high-performance UI programming and web accessibility. I used to do UX but I hated it and stay firmly on the execution side of the fence these days.

comment Using setTimeout to prevent long running script bugs in IE8 - why does it depend on the interval?
@EliasVanOotegem - the setTimeout is running at the very end of those functions, though.

comment Using setTimeout to prevent long running script bugs in IE8 - why does it depend on the interval?
@EliasVanOotegem - the thing is, the MS documentation actually says that the warning is triggered by the instruction count, and that gets reset when calling code through setTimeout. Is this documentation then incorrect? Does IE need an n millisecond pause between function calls in order to count them separately?

@EliasVanOotegem - surely, the 15ms code would then exhibit the same behaviour if I don't interrupt the count by, e.g. clicking or triggering any other UI events? As far as I can tell, it doesn't.

comment JQuery val(), text() and html() all return an empty String
It's probably not related to your problem, but you don't need to wrap a $(callback) inside a $(document).ready(). Either alone will only run the code on DOMContentReady. And neither actually has to be used in this case; this code will never be invoked before the DOM is ready.
