11.05.2004 - MODI v1.4
I've updated the Mouseover DOM Inspector to work on sites serving their content with an application/xhtml+xml MIME type. This was accomplished by removing all instances of object creation with the non-standard (but oh so very handy) innerHTML property.
So the code is bigger, but at least its "future-proof". For now, at least. =P
All of the original functionality remains, but it should be noted that the innerHTML viewer/modifier invoked with the "v" key isn't going to work on application/xhtml+xml sites unless someone who is feeling far more industrious than I am right now figures out a way to make that work with straight DOM methods.
Making the conversion wasn't as big a pain as I had anticipated it to be, only taking about 45 minutes, and I suppose going forward with new projects I'll avoid innerHTML, but I sure am going to miss it. Over the next week or so (probably longer) I'll be retro-fitting the other favelets in the same manner.
If you've not seen it yet, Gez has a good article on his site about serving XHTML as application/xhtml+xml versus text/html.
Note: Clear your cache if you aren't getting the update, and let me know if you run into any problems.

One problem for me ( Firefox1.0 Win ) is that the height/width labels or data seem to be mixed up. Eg the News <h2> on this page has a height of 447px and a width of 31px.
