Re: Change sourceMappingURL comment syntax to avoid IE JS conditional compilation issues


As the last line of a file it, do it really cause any problems with IE's
conditional code?  Can you give an example where it does?

The format was chosen to match Firebug's "SourceURL" annotation for naming
eval'd code (which Chrome also supports).

What is the proposed alternative?
