This code works in ie, but not ff.

this.parentNode.id works in ff, but not this.parentNode.name

hmm  even alert(getElementById(this.parentNode.id).name); doesn't work in firefox


<div id="Div1" name="Div1-Name" style="display:block;">
  <input type="button" class="button" name="Save" value="Save" onClick="alert(this.parentNode.id);alert(this.parentNode.name);"/>
</div>

div does not have an attribute name, call id instead

<input type="button" class="button" name="Save" value="Save" onClick="alert(this.parentNode.id);alert(this.parentNode.id);">

Thanks.  Hard to believe, but it's true.

<div id="Div1" name="Div1-Name" style="display:block;" onclick="alert(this.name);">
      text
</div>
