IE8 wasn't ever firing the load event. I think the event was firing before the handler was assigned.

@dave-irvine dave-irvine In IE8 it is necessary to set the load handler before setting the src…
… attribute,

as the load handler will fire as soon as the attribute is set, i.e, without it set,
the handler won't fire.

The demo (http://www.mattstow.com/experiment/responsive-image-maps/rwd-image-maps.html) doesn't work properly in IE8, it'd be nice if this commit was accepted. Not trying to be pushy, but looks like the work has already been done and it just needs to be merged in.

Sorry, but I'm dealing with a family emergency & have limited computer
access so can't test/merge any code for a while

I see. Sorry to bother you, hope it's not serious.

IE 8 support would be great. As i dont have a real IE8 to test i used the Developer tools in IE9 (F12) to simulate IE8. With the original script, the old coordinates were shown, now no links are shown but as there is a change in behaviour i think it's just the simulated IE8 mode that doesn't show the resized map.

I second the IE8 support when you have a chance. However, I am also testing using the developer tools in IE9 and would be interested to know if it actually does work on a real, live version of IE8.

Best of luck with your family and I hope all is well.

Merged and tested in real IE8 & IE9 compatibility mode and it now works as expected. Thanks @dave-irvine. Also fixed it to maintain chainability and made other optimisations. Here's the commit: 369c574
