<h1>IE capabilities detection (clientCaps)</h1>
<p>This shows how to detect IE capabilities in advance, as soon as the
Javascript interpreter executes the code by using the <b>clientCaps</b>
behavior and without the needs to wait for an "onload" event.</p>
<p>The original example and informations were taken directly from on-line
<a href="http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms535922(VS.85).aspx">Microsoft documentation</a>.</p>
