I figured it out. For IE, you have to run the javascript in an onload event handler for the window itself.

I like the GFC approach with its widgets, javascript library, server side API, and REST API. Something for everyone. I am currently having a problem where the javacsript library fails in IE yet works fine in Safari, Firefox, and chrome. Has anybody else run into this and did you find a solution?
