Need help 'observe_field' to work in Safari or Konqueror

Konquerer isn't officially supported by Prototype.js which Rails uses for it's Ajax stuff.

The latest version of Prototype is compatible with the following browsers: Browser Version(s) Mozilla Firefox ≥ 1.5 Microsoft Internet Explorer ≥ 6.0 Apple Safari ≥ 2.0 Opera ≥ 9.25

There should be no issue with Safari 3 or 2.

After a couple of days of tearing my hair out I have solved the problem another way. I have ditched the use of the 'observe_field' helpers and written the routine from scratch in java script.

Now it works in all of these browsers.

If anyone else stumbles accross this thread, I was greatly helped by this howto:
