Web site issues in IE9 - anyone with IE9 knows why?


Please go to
worldwide dot espacenet dot com
in IE9 and perhaps give me some idea what could make it fail rather badly as I have been told it does

I do not currently or in the near future have access to windows7 or vista+upgrade which is necessary to install IE9

Thanks for all pointers

I ran the website through the W3 validator and there were 8 errors.
Most are simple (but you should still fix them) but the last one looks like where the issue is coming from.


# Error Line 580, Column 63: value of attribute "method" cannot be "GET"; must be one of "get", "post"

…m" action="/singleLineSearch" method="GET" onsubmit="return validate(this,'')">

The value of the attribute is defined to be one of a list of possible values but in the document it contained something that is not allowed for that type of attribute. For instance, the “selected” attribute must be either minimized as “selected” or spelled out in full as “selected="selected"”; a value like “selected="true"” is not allowed.
I cannot see any problems with it.

Can you search from the search field?
I was told that did not work proper

If you search for rodent trap and try to download covers ?

In IE9 I had no issues until downloading covers.
The Verification code is entered, but it simply prompts me for another code.
I have tried a dozen times and cannot get the downloads.

It works fine in Firefox 3.6

Sheez thanks. Am going to do the same but was worried something more sinister and undetectable was going on. Someone warned me that the TARGET attribute is not supported for example

Thanks to you too SSupreme

@Rartemass I tested now myself with a virgin win7/ie9 using remote desktop. I have no issues at all with the download. Also not with the GET/get

can you perhaps see something in the console that would suggest why you might have issues?

Just tried it again and it worked OK.
