How do I know Javascript is enable?

I'm having problems accessing a site that is supposed to be okay.
The most likely possibility is that it has a lot of Javascript.

How do I know if my browser is enabled for JS?

I'm using win2K SP 4 with IE 6.

Thanks for your help,
Peter.

Create a file with this:
<html>
<script type="text/javascript">
alert("JS Message");
</script>
</html>

If you see the pop-up, JS is enabled.

If you get a big red box saying
'This PC is running Microsoft Windows
and using Internet Explorer.'
Javascript is enabled.

When you care to read the article yourself, you will notice that this method
detects whether Java is enabled, not JavaScript.

Thanks a lot folks.

The html file worked and I do have JS.

The link:
http://www.physci.org/jvmclean.jsp?pt=js
gave me:
Service Temporarily Unavailable
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance

It sure looks like a JS problem to me, but maybe I'm getting at the site
the wrong way -- from google.

Aaah. My server is a bit sleepy, apparently.

Usually, if you try them in a few moments,
they come good.
