[web] JavaScript problem

Recommended Posts

My Internet Explorer crashes whenever I get to a <form> tag in javascript. It generally works on sites, but when I run one myself, even if directly copied, it crashes in the f character of form. What could be causing this?

"<form> tag in javascript"

what does that mean? <form> is an html tag, how is JS involved? can you give an example page and a version of IE?

Here is an example, copied from a web site:


<html>
<body>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">


<form action="navigate.cfm" method="post" onsubmit="return navigateForm(this.form.navigateSelect)">
<select name="navigateSelect" id="navigateSelect" size="1">
<option value="">Choose One</option>
<option value="/">Home</option>
<option value="/products/">Products</option>
<option value="/faq/">FAQ</option>
<option value="/about_us/">About Us</option>
<option value="/contact_us/">Contact Us</option>
</select>
<input type="submit" value="Go" />
</form>
</script>
</body>
</html>


It doesn't work on my pc, crashing at line 13, character 1.

Your form somehow ended up inside the script element. As the script element only can contain CDATA your user agent will likely try to interpret the data as javascript.
