I'm still working on this. It's sticky.
Open to any ideas. Somehow the DHTML debugger which is in an iframe,
has to run js in the dhtml app, which is in a sibling iframe. And
the debugger kernel in the app has to send the answer back to the
debugger iframe. The only thing I have found that they can both talk
to is 'top', but that does not work if the wrapper comes from a
different domain (security issue). Not sure why it is not working in
the explorer, but probably has something to do with the iframes being
even more deeply nested there...
Max: any ideas? Dojo have anything that can help me?
