data-confirm and data-method don't work together in Internet Explorer 8

Reported by lars (at pinds) | September 2nd, 2010 @ 05:48 PM

If you have this code:

  <%= link_to "Click me", "javascript:alert('clicked')", :confirm => "Are you sure?", :method => :delete %>

Then in IE8, you'll first see the alert-box that says "clicked", then the confirm-box saying "Are you sure?".

Thus, the link gets clicked regardless of whether we click OK or Cancel in the confirm dialog.

Not good if the link is destructive (which it'll usually be if you're using the confirm box).
