Javascript bug with Image objects in IE8
Hi,

We have just found a problem, which is causing quite some trouble with
our
software (which runs on 3rd party websites).

It seems that under certain circumstances (not always), if there is a
DOM
object with id "Image", this overwrites the standard Image object of
javascript with the DOM element bearing that id. This seems to happen
right
before the document onload event.

In this URL you will find a simple setup that causes this issue:
http://www.blendsystems.com/tst/ie8.image.html

There you will find that during the ONLOAD, Image becomes:
[object HTMLDivElement]
instead of
[object HTMLImageElement]

As you can imagine, having a div named "Image" wouldn't be too rare,
and
this can potentially break web applications that have error handlers
to
produce terminations of the app. In short, this might be serious.

Warmest regards!

SLOOOOOW!!! I ended up in Google groups.
