Edit Table Button not working in Internet Explorer

When I click the Edit Table button at the bottom of a table using the Edit Row Plugin in Internet Explorer, nothing happens. When I do the same thing in other browsers, the table goes into "edit" mode.

I think this is because of an IE issue where <button> tags are not functional within <a> tags.

Is there any way to fix this?

What version of IE are you running? We've stopped trying to support some of the quirks of the older releases.

I was having this issue in IE11.

Okay thanks. HTML5 and I guess IE 11 don't permit button elements nested inside of link elements. I've found a number of complaints posted about this behavior. I'm not sure what the best solution is. The responses seem to suggest either using a button with an onclick event handler, or styling the link with css to look like a button. In any event, this needs a task filed. Unfortunately I don't have a quick fix to suggest.
