Internet Explorer:

If you make certain div a dialog on a fly (not using $(document).ready() ) and dialog's div is enclosed in another div, browser stops displaying the page and shows 'Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage'. Code to replicate is displayed at the bottom.

If this is accepted behaviour, documentation should stress this moment. This has did NOT happen in jQuery 1.2.6 + ui.base rev 5174 + ui.dialog rev 5185.

  <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
  <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
  <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
   <div id='coverDialog' title='zeTitel'>blah</div>
