IE adds all objects per name AND id attribute to the DOM 0 collections.

So the getELementById will never be called in IE (and it seems in Firefox). But I can't say anything about other browsers.

OTOH getELementById should never be called (for some years) with a test if it's an available function.

And please don't test against $GLOBALS['TSFE']->config['config']['doctype']. This may be s string with a valid DOCTYPE (eg xhtml+mathml etc) that will never get recognized. If we need something like this in the Core we should have a separate setting for this.

I have (or had?) some lines of code that did an auto-detection from config.doctype but had a manual override for custom doctypes.
