jQuery UI and Internet Explorer 6 Bug

It will come as no shock to any Web developer that IE6 chokes on its own vomit given the slightest provocation, even with a well-tested, cross-browser library such as jQuery UI.

I post this here hoping that someone else who has this problem will find it; I was able to find nothing useful about this by searching Google and the jQuery UI mailing list. The solution was discovered by my friend Dave, by arbitrarily removing bits of HTML and JavaScript until IE stopped doing its best weeping angel impression.

In this case, it was setting the 'modal' property of the jQuery UI dialog to 'true.' Commenting out that line made everything all better. That's all for now. Watch for other random bits of tech and other gibberish from me in the near future.
