Why isn't this working - -help please

P: n/a
Pretty new to javascript so please help. Why isn't this working in my

if (document.This.strOld.value.compareTo(Session("str Password")) != 0)
{ alert("Current password incorrect");
return false;

If I write out Session("strPassword") the value is 'password'. What am
I doing wrong?

Session is serverside ASP coding and document and alert() are clientside
coding. The two can never be in the same code.

[the outer quoting is necessary to make a string in clientside javascript!]

compareTo() is not native javascript, and if it were a declared prototype
function, it would probably return true or false, not 0.
