ok, I use www.friendpages.com to create my website and i cannot get any types of Java Script to work!!
It doesn't even work if i delete all of my site and just type this simple HTML:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
</HEAD>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<--!
alert("Welcome to my website!")
//-->
</SCRIPT>
<BODY>
</BODY>
</HTML>

I know this isnt specifically related to Dynamic Drive but could someone please tell me what im doing wrong?? I'd really appreciate it,
thanx,
Nadine.

Try this:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
<--!
alert("Welcome to my website!")
//-->
</SCRIPT>
</BODY>
</HTML>

Java ScriptJavascript[1] is one word. Anything else would imply something related to Java.


It doesn't even work if i delete all of my site and just type this simple HTML:That "simple" HTML is invalid. Trying to do anything sensible with invalid HTML is (generally) a waste of effort. Always validate (http://validator.w3.org/) your mark-up.


<HTML>
<HEAD>
</HEAD>All HTML documents require a title element.


<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">The language attribute has been deprecated for over six years. Use the (required) type attribute instead:


<script type="text/javascript">

<--!This is complete nonsense on two levels:


A correct opening SGML comment delimiter is written <!--. Correcting that should allow the script to run.
"Hiding" script and stylesheet content in this manner is as outdated as the language attribute. Stop doing it.

[1] JavaScript if you're refering to Netscape's implementation of ECMAScript, specifically.

Well just FYI:
the script should be in the head or the body tag. Putting it in between would certainly cause a problem. Head tag is preferred but I know a lot of scripts that will work just fine in the body too.

Works for me!
Do you have a popup blocker ?

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
alert("Welcome to my website!")
//-->
</SCRIPT>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
</BODY>
</HTML>
