problem including .js

P: 142
I'm writing my own web server that take a query and respond with the page;
It seems OK. FF nothing console errors.
Problem is when I tried to include in my file html a file "javas.js": FF gets strange error as:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Error: missing ; before statement
  2. Source Code: http://localhost/javas.js
  3. Row: 1, Column: 5
  4. Source Code:
  5.  200 Document Follows
I tried to do javas.js empty: the same error: where can be the error?
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <html>
  2. <head>
  3. <script language="javascript" src="javas.js"> </script> //without this all is ok
  4. <script>
  5. function myFunc () {
  6.        for (var i=0; i < 100; i++) {
  7.             var table = document.getElementById("intro");  
  8.             var row = document.createElement("tr");
  9.             var cell = document.createElement("td");
  10.             var link = document.createElement("a");    
  11.             link.setAttribute("href", "");
  12.             var linkText = document.createTextNode(" HI ");     
  13.             link.appendChild(linkText);
  14.             cell.appendChild(link);
  15.             row.appendChild(cell);
  16.             table.appendChild(row);        
  17.     }
  18. }   
  19. </script>
  21.  </head>
  22.  <body onload="myFunc()">
  23.     <table style="width: 100%" border="5" >
  24.        <tr><td>  Rsult </td> </tr>
  25.         <tbody id="intro"> </tbody>
  26.     </table>
  27. </body>
  28. </html>
However: the content in the page appear properly (only I'd like include a js. to do other thing)

Have you got script tags within the JavaScript file?

sorry, I don't know what you mean; script tags inside js file? like as <script> </script>; if you mean this, no i haven't it, only javascript code. Why?
But the problem is that the server don't display properly th page whenever I have the "line" that include include that file (it doesn't work even if the file is empty)

Yes, that's what I meant. That could possibly have been the cause of this error.

When you have the error on row 1, column 5, what are the contents of the JS file?

I'm leaving this thread here to deal with the JavaScript aspect of the problem, but I've also copied it over to the Java forum.
