[Greasemonkey] IE/JScript and Firefox/JS Diffs

There is one minor workaround....

See Creating a Hosted Favelet^H^H^H^H^H^H^HBookmark:

By dynamically inserting the Script, from some hosted source, you can 
get around this.

There are obvious drawbacks though...
1.) Need a host
2.) Must be connected to the Net
3.) If host goes down, bookmarklet is useless
4.) Bandwidth requirements... (over time)
5.) Portability when offline

I'd stick with Firefox if you can, but if you are stuck, these work.
