I can't seem to determine where the error is here - someone?

<script type="text/javascript">document.write('<a title="ocean beach map"
href="http://maps.yahoo.com/py/maps.py?BFCat=&amp;Pyt=Tmap&amp;newFL=Use+Address+Below&amp;addr=5155+West+Point+Loma+Boulevard&amp;csz=Ocean+Beach%2C+CA%2C+92107&amp;country=us&amp;Get%A0Map=Get+Map" target="_new">Ocean Beach (map)</a>');</script>

Thanks

Hey keyplr,

What error are you getting?

Is the document.write all on one line? If it has link break in the code, it will fail! Also, is there a space between the " at the end of the href and before 'target'?

Hi BlobFisk,

Getting "unterminated string constant" on my test page.

Yes, all on one line, and the space should be before the target.

Got it - it was a break in the string due to the wrap.
