windowName causes a warning in IE6 when doing sends from https domains

Reported by: jamoville Owned by: Kris Zyp

Description

If you have a web page that is using https that is making a POST call using IE6 an iframe is created (this line in the windowName.js.uncompressed.js)

var frame = ioArgs.frame = frame = doc.createElement(dojo.isIE ? '<iframe name="' + frameName + '" onload="dojox.io.windowName+frameNum+?()">' : 'iframe');

When doing a post the following line is used:

frameContainer.appendChild(frame);

In IE6 when no src is used on an iframe the src defaults to about:blank. This is defaulted to http and not https. This will cause IE6 to issue a warning indicating "there is unsecured data on this page do you want to continue".

If a src value is included, such as a blank page then this will go away.

Given the decline of IE6, probably this won't be fixed.
