FIX: Hotfix 324735 causes ASPX pages to generate HTML that does not postback correctly on Pocket PC 2002

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
SYMPTOMS
Postback code in an HTML page that is generated from ASP.NET does not work as expected on Pocket PC 2002 when .NET Framework post-SP2 hotfix 324735 is installed on the server computer running ASP.NET.
CAUSE
The hotfix changes HTML generation to be compatible with current versions of Netscape Navigator. However, this format is not compatible with Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.02, the browser version that is supplied with Pocket PC 2002. The postback Microsoft JScript that is generated before you apply the hotfix uses the following syntax:
var theform = document.SC_GroupList;
After you apply hotfix 324735, the syntax is revised to the following:
var theform = document.forms["SC_GroupList"]
Earlier JScript parsers cannot parse this Jscript.
