t's been a while since I've done anything Javascript, but yesterday I tried to whip up a local "web" page that would do a couple of things for me. I got an IE7 script security error which I thought was odd since all it was doing as a simple page write. I couldn't make it work, then I made this ridiculously simple javascript page:

<html>
  <body>
    <script type="text/javascript">
      document.write("Hello World!");
    </script>
  </body>
</html>

Same error. With default IE7 (and apparently IE6 SP2) security settings you can't run "Hello World" from your local hard drive. :(

There are supposedly good reasons for this, but good grief. Really? There's a way to force the page to behave as if it's on the internet by inserting something Microsoft calls "mark of the web". I had trouble getting that working but finally did it. Sheesh.
