Why should it not be blank?

you should post a link to your page, as there is not enough information here to solve this problem.

  2.                 url: "chksub.php",
  3.                 type: "POST",
  4.                 data:'vchksub='+editableObj.value,
  5.                 success: function(text){
  6.                  msg=text;
  7.                  if(msg=='NO' && $("#STATUS"+vid).html()=='' && editableObj.value!="")
  8.                  {$("#STATUS"+vid).html('<font color="red">*xx!</font>');}}

  1. <TD>SUBJECT1:</TD><TD><input type="text" onBlur="validatehu(this)" name="SUB1" id="SUB1" value="<?php echo $SUB1;?>"><span id="STATUSSUB1"></span></TD></TR>
but on final submit while checking all span text
but becomes blank on
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var valid=$( "#STATUSSUB1" ).text()
while undefined on
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var valid=document.getElementById("STATUSSUB2").text;
  2. alert(valid);
irrespective of span text is blank or *xx!
this happens on background check with other table only while all others are working fine
