I was trying to get a simple piece of jQuery to work and was running up against this error in Internet Explorer (IE):
Microsoft JScript runtime error: object expected
UPDATE (9 July 2009):
I am referencing jQuery from the Google CDN now:
Using this technique will also get rid of this error and improve performance.
The first reference to jQuery (1.3.2) is for the core jQuery library. The second reference to (1.7.2) is for the optional jQuery UI library that you will only need if you are using the UI components/elements of the jQuery library. If you are using jQuery to manipulate the DOM only then you won't need the UI reference.
