You either add information to an existing topic (aka page) or you start
a new topic.

When you edit an existing topic you edit the whole thing, not just a
portion of it.

That's the Wiki mark-up (which is explained through various links at the
top of the LHS Memu on the edit page).

There are two ways to start a new topic:

1) Add the TitleOfTheNewTopic (as a WikiWord) to an existing topic. Then
click that link to start editing the new topic.

2) Enter the TitleOfTheNewTopic in the Search/Go box in the upper left
corner of any topic and hit [Enter] or click the GO button. Then click
the edit link on the next page.

Please post the actual error (from your browser's Javascript console).

I don't use Microsoft Windows so I can't use MSIE to check this report
