Can't get external javascript to run within FP2003


N

Nick Hebb

I can't get javascript to run from external files in Preview mode. If
the entire script is placed within the page, it previews fine in FP.
If I upload the page and external javascript to my server, it runs
fine.

But whenever I try to preview a page in FP2003 with external script I
get the following error message:

Line: 2
Character: 1
Error: Invalid character:
Code: 0

Note: It doesn't matter what the script is - I get the same error
message.

Can anyone shed some light on why this might be happening?

Oh, and I should add...

I can preview in the browser (FF3 and IE7) locally without any
errors.The problem only happens when I preview within FrontPage.

The FP Preview mode is not a full browser and does not support most java

The same javascript (not java) works when it's embedded in the html
file, so I don't think its a browser capability issue. I've been able
to run external javascript in the past.

The FP Preview mode is unreliable - so unreliable that it's been removed
from Expression Web. What's important is how the page works in the browser -
that's what your visitors will be using using.

Thanks Kathleen. That's unfortunate, but at least I now know that it's
not my setup causing the problem.
