My site: http://KenoshaOnline.net (not complete, but getting there) comes up okay in Internet Exploder, but always with this error:

"Problems with this Web page might prevent it from being displayed properly... blah blah...

Line: 43
Char: 73
Error: Unterminated string constant
Code: 0
URL: http://kenoshaonline.net"

Has anyone seen one like this, and there is no reference to the actual file that Line 43, Char 73 is being called from... Thanks!

The problem is with your javascript. You're calling the function dynAnimation() in the body tag but don't define it properly. This function has no statements to execute and neither does the function clickSwapImg. You refer to a file named "animate.js", but the path to it is not listed correctly. You also have some formatting errors. There is no language attribute for the body tag. The script tag is missing a type attribute and fptype is not an attribute at all. The language attribute for the script tag was deprecated in HTML 4.01 so it should be dropped in favor of the type attribute.


wow... that's a pretty comprehensive diagnosis! Thank you!!! Very much!


You're welcome. I hate IE's non-descriptive error messages. It would be much more helpful if it just said "Fix your javascript." hehehe
