Dynamically Created Radio Buttons - Another IE Gotcha

As soon as I think I have it all worked out I bump into another oddity between Firefox and IE and handling the DOM. Specifically adding a radio button (or set of them) dynamically. My initial javascript went something like this: # var rdo = document.createElement('input'); # rdo.type = 'radio'; # = 'someUniqueID'; # = 'myRadio'; # rdo.value = 1; # # myDocumentsBody.appendChild(rdo); This almost worked perfectly. The input was added, it was a radio button, but it was totally unselectable. I could select it via javascript but the normal "click" event didn't cause the radio button to assume the "selected" state in IE? What gives?
