bug 149 - no DOM Level 2 Mutation Events in IE

Issue: #149
Affects: IE6, IE7, IE8

The W3C specs for (W3C DOM2 Mutation Events) (Nov 2000) specify events that allow developers to listen for changes in the DOM, so that they can apply JavaScript on-demand, as needed.

In particular, noting when a DOM element has children added or changed are the key moments developers would like to be able to apply a sprinkle of JS.

Being able to use these events would be fantastic, but support for them in IE is non-existent at the moment.

Known Workarounds: None.

Related Issues: None.
