IE9 Bugs With Google Maps Embeds

Google Maps Internet Explorer 9There are several complaints in a Google Maps Help forum that the new Internet Explorer 9 does not work on all Google Maps found embedded on web sites.

As you know, many site owners use Google Maps directly on their sites.

And if someone is using Internet Explorer 9, the user may get a weird error when trying to load the page.

The errors may read:

SCRIPT5022: DOM Exception: INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR (5) main.js, line 385 character 152.

Google is now aware of the issue. Brian from Google said:

Apologies for being a little tardy hopping into this thread and for the inconvenience this error is causing. I wanted to let you all know that I've escalated the IE 9 issue and the team is looking into it. I appreciate your continued patience. When I have the latest information, I'll make sure to post it here.

There is no ETA for a fix and I am not sure if it impacts all embed codes and all IE9 users but it does seem to be a problem for many.
