I do not have the expertise needed to fix these issues but I have some money I can offer (out of my own pocket, not a company).  Is there any uber UI/UX experts that would be willing to work on this if I pay you (must be resolved or I cannot pay)?  This is coming from my pocket so I would need a fixed bid, but I am willing to put my money where my mouth is.  If you are willing you can contact me at:  robertc  [@]  dnnguru com  (or just post here).

BTW As stated above I will pay to get this fixed and once it is fix I will go one further and I will give the fix back to the community (free/no cost).  This way we can all benefit from this work (this project HAS to be cross browser if it is going to be truly successful). 

Although I am on a bit of a budget, I can offer $500.00 USD (maybe a little more) to get this issue resolved.  Is there anyone that thinks they can solve these cross browser issues for $500.00 USD?

I have just hired Richard Willis from SalamanderSoft Limited to finish the UI updates to the WebPlayer so it supports IE, FireFox, Safari, and hopefully Opera and Chrome as well. Once he has completed the updates and have everything working in the prior mentioned browser, he will move the updates into this projects source code for all to enjoy. I want to take a moment to thank those who have responded to my offer to pay for these updates and especially to thank Richard since he is giving up vacation time to do the work.

It fails in ie5.5 and ie8b2 cuts off the save image in the TOC

Hi Scott,
How did the testing go?

Hi All,

I've now uploaded patches for Firefox and other browser support in:
  1. Basic Web Player (which included core SLK files)
  2. Solitaire, the sample SCORM content included with SLK
  3. SLK itself including the Assignment List Web Part and the SCORM player.
If you want to be bleeding edge and have a test system to play on I've uploaded compiled version of Solitaire and the SharePoint Learning Kit at

Hi Richard,

were you able to see what the differences were between your patch and mine, I'm just heading out for the day but I'll take a look tomorrow.

Hi Robert, I've put the new fixes and a patch and uploaded the SLK at

Hi Scott,

Looks like everyone's working on Firefox support at the moment.

There's seems to be a few differences - hide/show TOC, enable TOC entries when complete sections, allow clicking on TOC entries spring to mind. Have a look at the patch I put up and see if there's anything you got that I missed.
