in reply to Error handling - how much/where/how?

there is an easy response for that: handle errors when you know how, otherwise just die!

There is only one thing worse than a script that doesn't work, and it is a script that seems to work but that actually doesn't.

    Amen brother.

    And I hit an excellent example of that recently. I was writing a webpage in which 70 odd input elements had to be submitted. Mozilla was GETting the result with no problems, but when I switched to Internet Explorer I had a problem. If I typed no text in my form I could submit it. But if I typed text in my form, IE would sit there blankly while I pressed my submit button.

    So die.. die ungracefully, or error someone.. let the world know that something unexpected happened!
