Ashley, 0plus1 : I used rc = '';because I read somewhere that for V8 (WebKit JS engine), it help the GC to catch faster the image to delete (the one referenced there before), but I can't find the reference anymore.
I have updated the plugin, and I'm going to post it in a few minutes.
One a problem that I have is that when you inject an image, you are 'loading' it (regarding the way the browser deal with it). And before loading it, you don't know its width/height.
I added some code to specify the width/height of the Sprite container (not the underlying IMGElement width/height), because I can't manage to force the browser to update the image when I set those.
With the new build, 0plus1, can you test and say if you still have the problem (I have tested it on FF 11, Chrome 16+, Opera 11+ and iOS5.1). I don't have any device with iOS < to 5 now, so I can't test it on that, neither on Andro?d.
See you in the other thread <img src="smileys/smiley2.gif" border="0" align="middle" />.
