.js file works locally but not on server

 8:39 am on Jul 9, 2008 (gmt 0)


I need some assistance with the above. I have a .js file included in an html page as below:

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" >
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles.css" >
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="niftyCorners.css">
<script type="text/javascript" src="nifty.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">



(I have removed some lines that I don't believe are relevant to the problem)

When testing this locally it works cross browser and has the desired effect. However, I have uploaded it to too different hosts and it would seem that the .js file is being ignored. I can't imagine that javascript is not supported by the webhosts...
Any suggestions as to what I have done wrong? If I need to provide more information please let me know.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, djmokoia.

Glad you got it sorted. What was the issue?

Thanks for the welcome.

bit of a schoolboy error actually. I'm ashamed to admit that a stray upper case letter had found its way into one of the file names! You know how sometimes you can't see the wood for the trees?!

Yes indeed, you think you're the only "schoolboy" around here? :)
Thanks for the update.
