I seem to be having this issue as well, best case scenario that is ;-) assuming something else isnt wrong with my implementation, or with IE. Using $_GET to "catch" the 'get' from Updater does not seem to allow access to the value of say a TEXTAREA in the page being "sent" by Updater.
Perhaps $_GET is not catching the 'get' from Ajax.Updater or IE simply isnt passing it??? cant be sure.
If anyone has a willingness to provide some feedback, I would be appreciative.
The overview is great. Only thing missing on first site was not a prototype issue. IE was caching a get and we needed to change it to post. Then guide showed us several things we hand not yet discovered about prototype. This is one of our new must have list!
