JavaScript headache and code forensics

Mixing modernizr with cufón produces sadness for IE8 on Windows XP.  More specifically cufón 1.09i and modernizr 2.5.3 create a combination that produces weird double lettering.

I reported the issue to the cufón dev, https://github.com/sorccu/cufon/issues/239

Found the relevant issue on the modernizr project, https://github.com/Modernizr/Modernizr/issues/534

And followed it to the root issue on the html5shiv, https://github.com/aFarkas/html5shiv/issues/54

From there I went to https://github.com/aFarkas/html5shiv/commit/9aa5bcdca367fd86ec5d5b73ca4d95e032a0f502#diff-1 and figured out what exactly I would need to fix the problem.

Thinking I could ditch modernizr and just use the most up to date html5shiv at http://code.google.com/p/html5shiv/
