IE9 huh? i didn't see that qualifier, only what appeared to a blatant error by a respected coder.
Still, I tried it in IE9 and low and behold, i got "1.00".
now, knowing you're not crazy, and that you're usually wise, i kept plugging at it and noticed that in IE9 quirks, indeed the innerHTML is swapped for the value. This actually makes some sense.
I have to say that there's a big diff between IE9Quirks and IE9 Standard (the default), so please mention such parameters in future postings.
