Allow to act on dynamic elements: rerun parseStylesheets

We used to allow IE5 & IE6 to provide rollover highlighting with the hover selector. Unfortunately, this didn’t support HTML that was generated dynamically, in our case by AJAX updates to the page. The solution was to add this line to

window.parseStylesheets = parseStylesheets;

This made that method available to the rest of the code. Then, on AJAX update, I added this line:

if (window.parseStylesheets) window.parseStylesheets();

    Thank you so much – I realise you probably don’t look at these comments, but this has resolved the issue I was having. Oddly, the was working fine in IE6 before we redesigned it, and afterwards it was just not working.

    Thanks again. I owe you a drink of your choice!
