Twitter is broken on IE8


#1

About half the time when I try to open a Twitter user’s page (e.g. – https://twitter.com/#!/EelRiver2012) using IE8 on Windows XP, I get a (mostly) blank page with a little yellow “!” triangle in the lower left corner of the status bar with a message that reads “Done, with errors”. Double-clicking on that yellow triangle, then brings up a dialog box that details three errors. Those error messages are as follows:

Other non-IE browsers do not seem to have this problem. So what’s up with Twitter and its inability to work with IE8?

Any help you can offer me would be appreciated. I’m a web designer and my clients want to have links to their Twitter pages on their websites. However, I am hesitant to provide links when these kinds of errors occur about 50% of the time. Thanks in advance for your help and comments.
