Yesterday I discovered that the <button> tag doesn't work in Pocket Internet Explorer so for the mobile version of the particular page I'm working on I had to replace the <button> tag with a <input type="submit"> tag.

And I thought Microsoft invented the tag. Perhaps they did but forgot about their own "standards" when they did the Pocket IE.

You are right Renato - this is lamentable ;)

There's an overview of all Pocket IE supported HTML elements on the MSDN sites.
