Hi I have been putting some scripts into my page and have found that i suddenly have errors all over the place and cant find whats causing them. Im quite new to this so please help!!

A good example is an error that i find as soon as I select the radio button on my page it details that

Line 286 char 1 is where the error is - Upon investigation I find that the error cant be there because the line of code there is

<p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:8.0pt;font-family:Tahoma'>

I arent using an ide just using notepad for the development. Im used to Visual basic where on error it takes you to and highlights the erronous code. Can someone recommend an ide that does the same thing for javascript.

Or advise on what this might be.

It is very difficult to reach a conclusion only based on the facts you've provided. You need to provide more details, source code or a link to your page which causes the problem, then only the users might be able to help.

Aptana (http://www.aptana.com/) is a good editor for JS part and though you can find lots of WYSIWYG IDE for HTML none of them are efficient as they used to claim. It is better if you use a text editor over an IDE but if you insist then you can try http://www.coffeecup.com/

I believe that the error is in an external JS, since Line 286 is an HTML page.

...Show us your JS ;)
