Print Dijit Example not working in IE 8

I have a basic print example  based on, but I have changed out the webmap for a standard JS map with arcdynamicservicelayers etc.   This works just fine in Firefox.  When I try the sample code in IE 8, it doesn't look to load the esri.dijit.Print I created.  Instead, looking at the IE Developers Tools, I'm getting errors for 'Object doesn't support this property or method' . 

The Print button I expect to see never loads and neither does my map.  I've played with a couple of different version of the API, but that doesn't seem to help. 

This must work in IE.  Maybe it's something small I just haven't spotted yet?
