Tinymce, Jquery and AJAX submit in IE6

Hello Experts,

After a lot of pain and experimentation I have finally managed to get Tinymce to update to submit via the Jquery Form plugin. However, for some reason it will only work in Firefox and in IE6 it just fails throwing up "Unspecified Error". I've gone through everything I can think of to get it working, but nothing seems to work.

Help? My code is attached.

500 points as ever :-)

Can you provide the dependencies (or links to them) ? (the jquery plugins and the example data)

Sorry it's taken me sooo long to respond. I had by broadband cut due to an administrative error at my ISP.

I'm afraid I can't give you links to the actual pages as it's on a corporate intranet, but I'm pretty much just using the Jquery form plugin (from http://malsup.com/jquery/form/).

LiveQuery is in there because I've been trying to get Facebox working with our internal proxy servers but it seems I'm fighting a losing battle there so I'm going to have to revert to Thickbox and experiment with the stylesheets to make the popups look more facebook-y. So you can ignore the other plugins.

Like I say this works completely fine in Firefox (I should even be able to make a scripted, timed autosave) but IE6 refuses to play ball :-(
Dave6969Author Commented:
I'm still having troubles with this....

I'm guessing that because I didn't respond for so long dues to other problems, interest has been lost.

Do I need to ask a new question?
Dave6969Author Commented:
I've solved it!

I wasn't putting the method into the form. Firefox doesn't mind this, but IE can't cope and won't submit it.
