Re: Anchor does not work in IE - very strange problem!

Audio element is supported from IE > 8 according to this.
Always use the static method isSupported() for all @PartialSupport classes for runtime check.

setting the compiler mode to "pretty" did not result in a more comprehensive error message: (TypeError)

But I finally found the nullpointer exception by tracing. It happened in the newly added code for audio:

private Audio snd_Move = Audio.createIfSupported ();
snd_Move.setSrc(...); // snd_Move is null!!!

So the original problem is solved now. Many thanks for all the advices!

Last questions:
- Why isn't this exception alerted with a comprehensive message, without calling setUncaughtExceptionHandler, like other client-side exceptions?
- The fact, that Audio.createIfSupported () returns null: Does this mean that IE 8/9 does not support audio at all?
