Basically if a page has an html tag with with
id="tags" as an attribute, when you try to print in IE you’ll get a fun error message:
And you can’t print the webpage.
Of course one of articles on Java.net had just that, so I removed the unnecessary
id="tags" and lo and behold…the problem did not go away. So it took me some time to discover that
name="tags" is also persona non grata in IE, something that hadn’t previously been described in Eric’s post.
So the moral of the story is, avoid using
tags as the
name of any HTML tag.
