That IE7 prompt issue...

So here's why: Working around IE7s prompt bug, er feature (includes a possible solution)
Damn their eyes!

There's an alternative, but similar, solution here: http://www.anyexample.com/webdev/javascript/ie7_javascript_prompt()_alternative.xml. Both solutions require a relatively extensive script and callback, so it may be best if I stick it all into an external JS file and embed and call this with the bookmarklet. However I also now know that it's a security setting, so I've fixed my own IE installation. If you want to do the same, you must enable "Allow websites to prompt for information using scripted windows". Seems to all work then.
