OK, so for reasons that are complicated, political and stupid, I am running an AngularJS app inside an OBJECT tag inside a page that runs in quirks mode on IE9. This part works fine - IE9 treats it like a whole new browser window with its own environment.

The problem is, the container page exposes several functions for integration into the larger application suite, and I have to be able to call them. This is problematic because the OBJECT and the container page are running two separate javascript runtimes (as evidenced by AngularJS not dying on startup) and can't see inside each other. The OBJECT can't see its parent elements, and the container can't see inside the OBJECT.

However, other types of embedded objects are scriptable despite running in isolation from the javascript runtime, so maybe there is hope.

Is there a way for the two pages to talk, or am I out of luck? Worst case I can always set up a push servlet on the container page and use the server as a go-between.
