I've tested it in IE6 and IE7, and Kupu is working for me.

HTML validator reports only 43 errors and 91 warnings on that page. I'm sure Internet Explorer 6 and 7 doesn't care much about web standards...


Line 705 is ending <div>. Probably it is end of <div> where Kupu is embedded.


There is probably some problem with the way how Kupu XML is embedded to the page. I don't know what exactly is wrong here. There might be some better way to hide XML from old browsers.

            <div style="display: none;">

                <xml id="kupuconfig" class="kupuconfig">

This looks like a JavaScript? error message (browsers should never throw error messages about faulty html). Again, this might very well be due to a messed up IE installation (or aborted transfer, or javascript filters on the web proxy, or something). Again, unless someone can produce this on another machine, I'm blaming the machine.
