(Matt) I know you do PHP, but is a hashtable a bit like a dictionary
object in ASP?  If so then I wrote one of these in javascript already.

Given that I'm not going to be using my script for a hashtable, are
there any other arguements against extending the Object Prototype (and
of course apart from IE not supporting it)?


P.S. Thanks for everyones help.
