Safari failing silently

P: n/a
The stuff I've built recently works (in the sense that it does what I'm
expecting it to do without any errors or warnings) in IE and FF but
fails silently in Safari. I don't have a Mac to test on. I write some
stuff and send it to the client who tests and reports back.

I don't do any browser sniffing, I test for a feature for I try to use it...

Are there any known oddities about scripting for Safari that might
possibly help me out.

Since you test for the feature, it is probably the reason why it fails
silently (without errors). I would create a test version for the client,
adding something to do if the feature is not available. Typically, I
would write a log file (for example to another window or even (given the
right permissions) to a text file, but a simple alert might work too.

HTH,

But all the features I use are supposedly supported in Safari.

Thanks that's a good idea: I'll try writing stuff to a second window.
