2 problems

Im trying to make a small news bulletin that other website owners can copy
to their websites

But my problem is that im not good at java.

I have 2 problems:

1. how do i make a line break in the
news[1]="bla bla bla";
So it would appear as
bla bla
bla

2. how do i make a link in
document.write(news[1]);
so it would appear
link bla bla bla

The file is called news.js

***********
news=new Array;

news[1]="bla bla bla";
news[2]="blu blu";
news[3]="bly bly";
news[4]="bla blo";
news[5]="blo bla";

function Shownews() {

document.write(news[1]);
document.write(news[2]);
document.write(news[3]);
document.write(news[4]);
document.write(news[5]);

}

**************

This is what i want other website owners to place on their sites.
*************
<script type="text/javascript" src="news.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
Shownews();
*************

This has nothing to do with Java.
Your problem doesn't even have anything to do with Javascript.
These are purely HTML problems:

1. how do i make a line break in the
news[1]="bla bla bla";
So it would appear as
bla bla
bla
news[1]="bla bla<br>bla";

2. how do i make a link in
document.write(news[1]);
so it would appear
link bla bla bla


news[1]="<a href='http://www.link.com'>link</a> bla bla bla";

Especially the spelling, it is Java..

Assuming you were writing Java, which
is a different language to Javascript,
and ..no, you're not writing Java.
<script type="text/javascript" src="news.js"></script>


You are writing 'Javascript'.

I believe that a / in a string needs to be escaped with a \ these days. Like
so:
news[1]="<a href='http:\/\/www.link.com'>link<\/a> bla bla bla";

Another idea the OP might benefit from, is the link method of strings:

news[1] = 'link'.link() + ' bla bla';

This is what i want other website owners to place on their sites.

What would be the difference when you called ShowNews directly? Put it in
the last line of news.js. I think that would run a lot smoother, with a
highly reduced chance of those others messing things up. In the current
situation, Shownews may be called long before news.js has loaded...

No. It would need to be escaped inside a Regular Expression literal, and
it needs to be escaped right after a "<" if inside a script tag.
So, the "</\a>" is correct, but the other escapes are not necessary.

Except that <\/a> might work better :)

I'm not aware of any browser that requires the escape.
I would hope that any published standard would allow
any text at all to appear within quotes.
What have I missed?
