Hello Folks (Did you miss me? A question perhaps better left unanswered.)

My question du jour: Is there a way to escape (or otherwise deal with) the logical and (&&) operator in order to not generate an error message when I do a w3c check on the page?

Best to all,

A.

Bonjour Marain,
Tu me manquais énormément.
Do you mean & or &&? I've never had validation problems with &&.

No, I do mean &&. Il ne marche pas!

The validator does not complain about:

<!doctype html>
<html >
<head>

<title>Logical And</title>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">

<script>
function bla()
{
if(2>1 && 3>2)
{
alert('3 bigger than 1')
}
}
</script>

</head>

<body>
<script>
bla()
</script>
</body>

</html>

Perhaps. But try to validate http://www.njdriverslicenses.com/quest.php and see what happens.

Try encasing the script in CDATA tags
<script>
//<![CDATA[
... Script here ...
//]]>
</script>

<script>
//<=!=[=C=D=A=T=A=[
... Script here ...
//]=]=>
</script>
Yes, or make sure your document is not parsed bythe XML parser. This can be done by choosing another doctype.
