Scripts not working in IE (Read 773 times)

    Hey, has anybody else had trouble using the java script snippets in Internet Explorer? It didn't work on my site so I isolated one onto a most simple web page: http://web.mac.com/alexspurzem/iWeb/test.html This works great in Firefox or Safari but NOTHING shoes up in IE. Am I going crazy or can anybody confirm this problem? Thanks! Alex

      Hey, I found it myself: instead of ending the script tag as a closed tag ..../> I ended it ...>. That did the job for me and now it works in IE as well.
        Alex, glad to hear that you resolved the issue. I'm guessing you're using an old version of IE that doesn't understand XHTML.

          Actually IE6 but it might be related to a wrong doctype definition.

            Hmmm... I can't get the script to work either...and I tried the alternate closing tag suggested by alex. When I view the page after inserting the script, it appears on my webpage as follows: .. type="text/javascript" src="http://www.runningahead.com/scripts/3f8c027716c5467599042e5a855dbfe0/latest">..> Any other suggestions?

              Mishka, could you send me your page's URL so I can take a look? It's probably something simple, but hard to diagose without additional info.

                Eric, My homepage URL... http://www.myspace.com/mjk800 I put the script in the "General Interests" section of the page. It's located on the left hand side of the page, the 4th yellow box down from the top. Thanks for checking it out.

                  Mishka, The problem is that MySpace.com disallows javascripts. I need to create an alternative method of displaying your stats. They're a little more complicated. I can't do it right now because I'm working on GPS upload, but I'll try to do it when I find some time. eric Smile
