Js CODE in html tag ......

2,476 Top Contributor
today i experienced an interesting problem with JS.

look at this code carefully .....

<body onload = alert(Msg)>
It works wellll.....

if i write <body onload = confirm(Msg)>
but it does not work...

after seperating the JS CODE with '' or "" ... then it works well

i m working with IE

is it a good practice ... while i writing JS code in HTML TAG.. seperate with '' or "".....??????????
i mean .... with event handling CODE

i want the proper explaination ... thanxxxx in advance

The code should be within quotes, but separation is even better where the JavaScript code is separate from the HTML. For example, body onload becomes window.onload=. .. or even window.addEvent Listener(...)/window.attachEv ent.

always use the quotes! strictly seen - that are not event-handlers but attributes of the node ... and when assigning a value to it the browser handles that attributes to interpret the value as code that should be executed ... so every attribute-value in a html-document's nodes should be quoted ... always :)

kind regards
