Fair enough. ;-)

OK; do you recall if Selenium was also looked at?

BTW: This test code is scary:

    var isMozilla = (navigator.userAgent.indexOf("compatible") == -1);
    if (isMozilla) {
        t.ok( objC instanceof A, "obj C isa A" );
    } else {
        t.ok( true, "IE sucks" );

Cf. http://www.quirksmode.org/js/support.html
And http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Core_JavaScript_1.5_Guide:Property_Inheritance_Revisited:Determining_Instance_Relationships
for an instanceOf() function that supposedly works for JavaScript
versions that don't have the instanceof operator.
