DOM scripting - new rows in a table

I'm trying to use the response from an Ajax to create a new row in a table element. Code is something like this:

This all works in fine in Firefox. In IE(7), no new row appears - however, if I look at the DOM using the IE Developer Toolbar, the new row & cells have been inserted at the correct position in the DOM.

Any ideas? All help much appreciated...
