    JavaScript trailing comma

    Internet Explorer does not support trailing commas:

    $("#sections, .positions, .organizations").sortable({
        	containment: 'parent',
        	opacity: .5,
        	update: function(){},
    		placeholder: 'placeholder',
    		forcePlaceholderSize: 'true',   // This is a trailing comma and will break on IE

    Here are some blog entries referencing this problem. If anybody has more official references for this (or know about exact versions affected; This is a problem in all versions of IE up to version 7. IE 8 does allow trailing commas in arrays and object definitions, however only when in IE 8 strict mode I believe.
