IE8 quirks mode: drop down list positioned in wrong place

See test_DropDownSelect.html. Clicking on the first drop down displays "Tennessee" at the very bottom of the page, past the firebug console.

Not sure why but note that dijit.form.ComboBox is working correctly

Oh, ComboBox fails too if we make _autoComplete.html quirks mode by removing:


Looks like a bug in dijit's popup.js, or likely something in core. I'll look at first though...

Problem is that the dijitPopup class, although correctly applied to the wrapper div, and also correctly defined in dijit.css (both of these things are confirmable from IE's developer toolbar), is not taking affect, and thus the position is not absolute. Hmm.

Eugene - can you handle this one?

The root bug is that dojo.attr(node, "class", "foo") doesn't work on IE8 in quirksmode.

The simple fix is to modify _fixAttrName so that the lines:

case "class":
	return ieLT8  ? "className" : "class";

are changed to:

case "class":
	return ieLT8 || dojo.isQuirks ? "className" : "class";

However, it seems like maybe dojo.attr() should be executing node.className = "foo"; rather than the current behavior of calling node.setAttribute("class", "foo") (or node.setAttribute("className", "foo"), given that that's how the other class functions modify the class.

This can also be reproduced on the dijit/tests/form/test_Button.html if you set it to run in quirks mode as well.

(In [16743]) Redirecting the "class" attribute access to use node.className, !strict, fixes #8499.
