alterrnate for accesing the DOM element

I have a situation where I need to access the header checkbox of the table I'm doing it with

document.getElementsByClassName("table_th_label_div")[0];

But as some of the older browser does not support .getElementsByClassName I need an alternative appproach for the same

Kindly Help Thanks in advance

This solution may help. This is the getElementsByClassName function implemented in pure javascript, that works in IE.
