Script-generated code displaying differntly than the exact same code displayed staticly... help!?!?!

P: n/a
Hey there,

Big-time curiosity issue here...

Here's the test code (it's not that long)... it's to display a large
number of image links with captions, ideally pulled in from an
external file (that part's not here -- spotlighting the problem code):

--------BEGIN CODE PAGE------------
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/tr/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>Test</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
function testSpans(sbody) {
var sp, i, j, oneRecord;
sbody = document.getElementById(sbody);
for (i = 0; i <= 1; i++) {
var bkSpan, bkAa, bkAb, bkAex, bkImg, bkTitle,
bkTypea, bkTypeb, txt, br;
txt = "Text Text";
testImg = document.createElement("img");
testImg.setAttribute("src",
"images/test.gif");
testA = document.createElement("a");
testA.setAttribute("href",
"test/url/index.htm");
testA.appendChild(testImg);
br = document.createElement("br");
testA.appendChild(br);
testText = document.createTextNode(txt);
testA.appendChild(testText);
testSpan = document.createElement("span");
testSpan.setAttribute("id", i);
testSpan.style.display = "inline";
testSpan.style.width = "100px";
testSpan.appendChild(testA);
sbody.appendChild(testSpan);
}
}
function init() {
testSpans('scoobyDoo');
}
</script>
</head>
<body onload="init()">
<h1>Test</h1>
<hr />
<table><tr><td id="scoobyDoo"></td></tr></table>
</body>
</html>
--------END CODE PAGE------------

When it displays, the <span>'s don't line up on the same line like
they should:

IMAGE IMAGE
text text

Instead, it's as if the first span never ends... the image from the
second span displays right after the text in the first, like this:

IMAGE
text IMAGE
text

Using MSIE's "View Partial Source" powertoy, I can see that the
generated HTML is as follows:

--------BEGIN GENERATED HTML------------
<H1>Test</H1>
<HR>

<TABLE>
<TBODY>
<TR>
<TD id=scoobyDoo><SPAN id=0 style="DISPLAY: inline; WIDTH: 100px"><A
href="test/url/index.htm"><IMG height=30 src="images/test.gif"
width=28><BR>Text
Text</A></SPAN><SPAN id=1 style="DISPLAY: inline; WIDTH: 100px"><A
href="test/url/index.htm"><IMG height=30 src="images/test.gif"
width=28><BR>Text
Text</A></SPAN></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
--------END GENERATED HTML------------

The problem is that *this is right!* Putting this code in a page
displays perfectly, but it doesn't when generated by the JavaScript
shown above.

Anyone have any ideas? A CSS tag that will help? Another way to
dynamically create this data? Anything will be appreciated...

Make the blocks display:block and float:left. Then they will line up
the way you want. Or put them into separate td's.

I usually add these lines into xhtml files:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us" />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Style-Type" content="text/css" />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Script-Type" content="text/javascript" />

<title>Test</title>
<script type="text/javascript">
function testSpans(sbody) {
"In XHTML, the script and style elements are declared as having #PCDATA
content. As a result, < and & will be treated as the start of markup,
and entities such as &lt; and &amp; will be recognized as entity
references by the XML processor to < and & respectively. Wrapping the
content of the script or style element within a CDATA marked section
avoids the expansion of these entities."
http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/REC-xhtml1-20020801/#h-4.8

So, if you use < or & in your unmarked CDATA function, then it will be
treated and considered as markup.

<script type="text/javascript">
<![CDATA[
.... unescaped script content ...
]]>
</script>

is what I suggest here since you use < in your code.
var sp, i, j, oneRecord;
sbody = document.getElementById(sbody);
for (i = 0; i <= 1; i++) {
right here, we see the <.
var bkSpan, bkAa, bkAb, bkAex, bkImg, bkTitle,
bkTypea, bkTypeb, txt, br;
txt = "Text Text";
testImg = document.createElement("img");
testImg.setAttribute("src",
"images/test.gif");
Not recommendable. setAttribute should be used only when there is no
other attribute possible. Here, the simple

testImg.src = "images/test.gif";

works.

http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-2-HTM...ml#ID-87762984
testA = document.createElement("a");
testA.setAttribute("href",
"test/url/index.htm");
testA.href = "test/url/index.htm";

testA.appendChild(testImg);
br = document.createElement("br");
testA.appendChild(br);
testText = document.createTextNode(txt);
testA.appendChild(testText);
or
testA.appendChild(document.createTextNode(txt));

testSpan = document.createElement("span");
testSpan.setAttribute("id", i);
testSpan.id = i;
http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-2-HTM...ml#ID-63534901
testSpan.style.display = "inline";
Per definiion, a span is an inline element. So, there is no need for
that here.
testSpan.style.width = "100px";
testSpan.appendChild(testA);
sbody.appendChild(testSpan);
}

2 other suggestions:
- write a short but meaningful subject line in your post. Just
"Script-generated code displaying differntly" was sufficient
- try to upload your code, page somewhere and then just give the url;
that's always better and so much more convenient as the code can be
tested with various softwares (validations, verifying http headers, link
validators, accessibility validators,etc..)

Tried this, now IE throws Syntax Errors. :( (In Opera7, it doesn;t
do anything at all... hmmmm. Neither does another page that works
fine.. hmmmmmmm.)
testImg.setAttribute("src", "images/test.gif");

Thanks! Me == newb. Got most of this from an O'Reilly cookbook.
Learning by example...
testSpan.style.display = "inline";


Per definiion, a span is an inline element. So, there is no need for
that here.


This was me trying just about anything to see what might work to fix
it...

Actaully, I'm just using the HomeSite default new-page template. :)
When it displays, the <span>'s don't line up on the same line like

They shouldn't with the code you generate, not in standards mode.


Hm. They do when the code is input static-ly versus dynamically. Go
figure...
<SPAN id=0 style="DISPLAY: inline; WIDTH: 100px">


I see a problem right here. The CSS width property should have no
effect on an inline block.


Without the WIDTH property, the text below the image wouldn't wrap to
stay below the image.

But the first this you said above was that I "use a DOCTYPE that puts

Add that, and IE
will show it the same way as when generating it with Javascript.

Nope. Tried this and they all displayed in a vert line down the left
side. Wanted them to appear like words on a page, each span walking
from left to right across the page then wrapping at the edge of the
page.

Thanks for you comments!

With a width property, in standards mode, it won't either, since the
width property of inline elements are ignored.

Do you put the code into the same page, or into a page of its own?

If I take the generated code that you showed, and put it into a page
of its own, then it displays the way you want. Because the generated
code doesn't have a DOCTYPE, *taht* page is displayed in quirks mode.

If I then copy the DOCTYPE from the original page and add it to the
top of the generated code, then the generated code is shown according
to standards. And it displays the way you don't want it to, but that
the standards mandate.
What DOCTYPE would you recommend?
Any will do, as long as the HTML/XHTML actually follows the DOCTYPE.
To enforce standards mode, you will have to pick a DOCTYPE that triggers
standards mode. I prefer HTML 4.01 (strict) or XHTML 1.1, but it's not
that important, as long as you add a correct URL.

The generated code has tag names in capital letters, so it's not XHTML.
Then I would use:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html401/strict.dtd">

This page shows the DOCTYPE effects in Opera, which is similar to IE and
Mozilla: <URL:http://www.opera.com/docs/specs/doctype/>

[float:left] Nope. Tried this and they all displayed in a vert line down the left
side. Wanted them to appear like words on a page, each span walking
from left to right across the page then wrapping at the edge of the
page.


That is probably becaue you have wrapped it in a table. A table with one
cell is rarely necessary.

Try looking at this page:
---
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html401/strict.dtd">
<HTML>

<A HREF=""><IMG SRC="http://www.infimum.dk/privat/PicB.png"><BR>

</DIV>
</BODY>
</HTML>
---
The divs (no need to use spans, floats are automatically made block
elements) line up fine, and wrap to the next line when there isn't room
enough.

Replace the first DIVs text wth the fourth's and this code breaks. See
here -> http://www.straffin.com/test/divtest.html

Thank you for your help... I really want to do this right (so it
*works* and is *standard*), but I'm just not seeing how...

Ah, well noticed. To avoid that, you must make every box the same
height, by setting the height property of the divs.

And I can do that, but when I put this logic into my JavaScript, it
does the same thing the SPANs were doing.

This script --> http://www.straffin.com/test/dynamic.html
generates this HTML --> http://www.straffin.com/test/static.html
but they don't work/look the same. :(

I believe that DU had something whet he mentioned using CDATA, but I
cannot get that to work at all... it just gives syntax errors. There's
enough code that I could pull it out into an external file, but am not
sure how to do so.

Any pointers on the CDATA or external file stuff? :)

You have to first establish what you want here: an HTML 4.01 strict DTD
or an XHMTL 1 transitional DTD. Because I gave you numerous advices
based on the DTD you first chose. If you later remove that DTD, then
such advices if not removed will likely cause validation errors and
script errors.

You do not need to create an external file. Creating an external .js
file (regardless of DTD) is recommendable when the .js file is likely to
be used again for other files; cached files save http connection trips
to the server.

but am not sure how to do so.
Don't worry, I have done this before and I still have an entire working
example in a file.

This code works in Mozilla 1.5b, NS 7.1, Opera 7.20 and MSIE 6 for
Windows. I corrected a lot of misses in your code, removed unnecessary
variables, tuned their declarations and assignments and optimized the
code at several places. The color borders, commented out, are only there
for some visual feedback of the layout.
If you want all your <div>s to be on an horizontal line in MSIE 6 for
Windows as well, then you'll need to make some changes to the code.
Creating <div>s and adding a <br> to anchor objects certainly does NOT
seem to be necessary nor needed: I think it's only there to have the
text right under the image and links all lined up horizontally.

Thanks very much... this is great!
If you want all your <div>s to be on an horizontal line in MSIE 6 for

For example? (Whether I like it or not, IE will be the target browser
and needs to work there above all.)

text right under the image and links all lined up horizontally.
If I get rid of the <br> and add a space between the img and the text,
it works. See http://www.straffin.com/test/DUdyn2.html for my sample
(and the code for my next questions! <grin />)

---snip---/* DOMobjDiv.id = iterator; Why give such div an id? */

---snip---

I had been trying something else and they got left behind.

I added the next step of the code to th esample above, which works
okay, but I'm not pleased with my "alternate" use of the ALT tag. Any
suggestions for a different place to store "variables" in HTML? Also,
the placement of the validation imgs are acting funny... thoughts?
